This report template focuses on vulnerabilities discovered in popular third party browsers installed on Windows hosts that are known to have exploits. The area graph above was cut from one of five chapters produced by the template and depicts the downwards trend in the number of vulnerabilities discovered in the Google Chrome browser over a 7 day period. It is a good example of an ongoing successful remediation process measured by repetitive Nessus credentialed scanning.

There are five chapters:
The "Summary" chapter provides 7 day vulnerability trends for popular third party web browsers.

The remaining four chapters individually focus on popular third party browsers and summarize vulnerabilities that are known to have exploits in various ways. SecurityCenter's report builder makes it very easy to add and modify components, report elements, that report on vulnerabilities with known exploits:
