Synopsis

Scan logged-out intermittently

Description

This plugin is raised when the scanner detected that it has been logged out during the scan, but has been able to authenticate back against the web application
using the options provided in the scan policy. Such case may occur if the scanner accesses a link that led the session to be closed.

Check the output of the plugin for more details of the issue encountered by the scan.

Solution

Check in the URLs crawled during the scan or in your web application logs if scanner did not trigger logout action, and update scan policy to add this URL in the list of paths to exclude.
