Armor vulnerability list is empty

Hi,

 

I recently bought a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router for my home. I'm trying the Armor feature of the router before I commit to buy. I use the Netgear Iphone app for managing the device.

 

It seems all devices from my network are scanned. For one particular device of the network, a QNAP NAS, Armor states there are 135 vulnerabilities, but the software does not provide any detail regarding the vulnerabilities.

 

How can I get a list of the vulnerabilities? I click everywhere, and just the total count of vulnerabilities is displayed, but no detail anywhere.

While the IPhone app does not show results, I was able to visit https://armor.netgear.com and see the vulnerabilities detail. Perhaps there is a glitch in the phone application. It's interesting because there are 135 vulnerabilities listed, but the detail repeats multiple times. Anyway, https://armor.netgear.com has a better information than the phone.

I have a similar situation and also consulted the Armor web page.

 

My problem is a little different but you might encounter it later too.

 

The NAS devices I have were scanned in 2020 when I tried Armor on an RBK50 kit.

The other day I got an RBK853 kit and thought I'd like to try Armor again.

 

But the NAS devices have not been re-scanned and I can't see any way to re-scan them which needs to be done since there have been many firmware updates since the 2020 scan.

 

I don't see any way to initiate a re-scan form the Armor web page or (in my case) the Orbi app.

How can I do this?

I also noted I cannot initiate a scan. Also, I found there were reports one week apart as long as you have vulnerabilities. After the last vulnerability report, I fixed the source of the vulnerability (disabling uPnP) and I haven’t received any report since.
