Known Issue: Excluding CIDR Network Ranges in Vulnerability Scans

Reported Version: 5.3.4
Deployment: All deployments
AlienVault Ticket ID ENG-104834

Description

In AlienVault USM Appliance, when setting up a vulnerability scan job (Environment > Vunerabilities > Scan Jobs > New Scan Jobs), you cannot specify a CIDR range with the exclude function (!n.n.n.n) to exclude a CIDR network range or block of IP addresses from the vulnerability scan.

Workaround

When using the exclude function to exclude a block or range of IP addresses from a vulnerability scan, you need to specify each IP address in the block individually.
