If you have the local admin account, the MS Baseline Security Scanner
will definitely check for all the patches and cover the MS stuff very
well.  You can also use Nessus and if you give it logon credentials, it
can do a lot of checks on the machine.  The commercial version of Nessus
has some additional features in this area.

Subject: Question about vulnerability scanning

I had a question and was looking for some information pertaining to it.
I have no doubt that this has been covered in the past, but I can't find
any emails with it right now.


I'm looking for a good vulnerability scanner that I can run from a
single workstation/server.  I would like somewhat detailed reports about
what patches are missing and if Anti-Virus is installed.  I know there
are many solutions out that can be purchased but I'm wondering what free
solutions exist and how well they stand up to paid for solutions.


If anyone has any information on or white papers about any solutions let
me know.


Thanks!

Andy
