Qualys scans generating tons of logs

Discussion created by Rohil S on May 15, 2020



We have seen multiple cases where Qualys scans have been generating GBs worth of log messages. Primarily, I have seen it in HTTP related cases usually in directory traversal kind of attacks or enumerating files/folders like /images/ etc. All kinds of ports are in question here, I've seen it in standard and non-standard ports.


Anyone else facing such issues or any workaround on trying to reduce this noise? 


Any help is appreciated.
