Vulners agent

Vulners agent for Windows is an open source solution, which provides vulnerability assessment Windows-based systems. The agent performs scans with minimum execution commands and, as a result, achieves extremely fast scanning speed. You will need the Python 3 to install the agent.

The agent gathers information about your operating system, its version, and any installed packages and patches. This information is then sent to Vulners API to find out which software is vulnerable. You can check how it works in manual mode to evaluate the results.
