Advanced IP Scanner Exploit Notification Possible False Positive. Any Suggestions?


I was scanning my network with Advanced IP scanner from my PC and got 3 simultaneous notifications of blocked exploits from different IP's on the network (a printer and 2 wifi access points). Can these be false positives related the use of Advanced IP scanner? Any other things I should check?

    Hello @Steve567,

    This tool, as its name implies, performs network scanning to assess its security. Such tools can be used for legitimate purposes or can be used by hackers to infiltrate the network.

    Bitdefender detects the scan activity and alerts the user. If the tool is used by the user for a legitimate purpose, the detection can be ignored.
