Faizan Rafiq Scanned Report of GFI LANGuard Nessus scan did not work for me when I ran it through my host it did not give me any vulnerability after I tried to scan multiple times, so I decided to use the results from the scan that I found from the GFI LANGuard scan report. The total number of vulnerabilities were found in this scan were 25 of all. The higher vulnerability was in majority with 12 and medium were 6, low 5, and potential vulnerabilities were 2.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
