How to scan for vulnerabilities on a windows PC.

Vulnerabilities are the weak spots in a thing. When we talk about software or hardware vulnerabilities, this means there is a flaw in the design or configuration of the software or hardware. Vulnerabilities are very important because security breaches usually start with an attacker scanning systems for potential vulnerabilities, and then using such vulnerabilities for a security attack.

You can scan for vulnerabilities on your PC using the Microsoft baseline security scanner which can be downloaded from the link below.

Click on the file after the download has ended and run it. After it finishes installing you should see the screen below.



Click the "scan a computer option", select your PC by name, select your preferred scanning options and click start scan.



The completed scan is presented in a detailed format showing score, issue and result. The report can be printed or copied to clipboard and saved.
