The main benefit of retesting security items with same plugin configuration/scan options is to see if the problems identified by the previous scan have been dealt with effectively.

If you want to retest the security items click Retest Security Items. The following screen appears.

Retest Security Items

The Retest Security Items contains the following.

  • Time - The time shows the date and time of the last scan performed.
  • Target - Shows the IP address
  • Re-Scan - To perform a new scan of an IP, which has been scanned for security earlier.

If Retest Security Items is clicked then HackerGuardian starts scanning the IP. When scanning the following message is displayed.

Scan Control Center

You may click Stop Scanning to perform the scan later on.

Click Go To Report List or View Report to check the status of the IP scanned.
