I’m working on a computer science multi-part question and need an explanation to help me learn.
Download and run a vulnerability scanner (your choice) and a port scanner on a machine. Take the top 5 vulnerabilities and research them and explain in your own words (do not cut and paste), why this vulnerability is an issue. Also, run a port scanner and select 3 ports that you think that should not be turned on and explain why they are a vulnerability.
** If you do not find 5 vulnerabilities on your machine, then research 5 “CVE” vulnerabilities and complete the assignment. Do the same for the ports as well.
