This plugin compares the reported vulnerable Windows patches to find conflicts.


This plugin compares vulnerabilities reported by Nessus and supplied patch management results to determine conflicts in Windows patches. The report will allow you to audit your patch management solution to determine if it is reporting properly.


If conflicts exist, they should be resolved with updates.
