Info Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98044

Synopsis

Scan aborted after being logged out

Description

This plugin is raised when the scanner has been logged out and has not been able to authenticate back against the web application using the options provided in the scan policy. This may be due to some links accessed by the scanner during the scan that could have invalidated the session used by the scanner, or even have altered the account used for the authentication.

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

Solution

Check web application configuration if the credentials are still valid and if any log could explain why session has been terminated and could not be recovered.
