Vulnerability Summary Table Variables

  • ${vulntable} – This defines a table to be a vulnerability listing table.

  • ${impact} – Impact of the vulnerability
  • ${cvss} – cvss score of the vulnerability
  • ${status} – CVSS Score of the vulnerability
  • ${count} – Row Count of the vulnerability
  • ${tracking} – Tracking number of the vulnerability
  • ${vid} – Vulnerability internal database id
  • ${color  key=value,key=value} – The color of the cell based on key value pairs. If you want all cells with the text Critical to be red and High’s to be blue then the variable will be ${color Critical=FF0000,High=0000FF}

Example Table:


${vulntable} ${color Critical=C00000,High=FFC000}
ID Finding Name Score CVSS Severity
${count} ${vulnname} ${cvss} ${severity}


Vulnerability Findings Variables

These are used inside the template.FINDINGS templates.

  • ${vulnerablity.NAME} – Name of the vulnerability
  • ${vulnerablity.CAT} – Vulnerability Category.
  • ${vulnerability.DESC} – Vulnerability Description
  • ${vulnerability.REC} – Vulnerability Fix Recommendation
  • ${vulnerablity.SEVERITY} – Overall severity of the vulnerability
  • ${vulnerablity.IMPACT} – Impact rating of the vulnerability
  • ${vulnerablity.LIKELYHOOD} – Likelyhood of the vulnerability
  • ${vulnerablity.VID} – Internal Database ID of the vulnerability
  • ${vulnerablity.STATUS} – Status of the Vulnerability (open or closed)
  • ${vulnerablity.TRACKING} – Vulnerability Tracking Id
  • ${vulnerablity.CVSS} – Vulnerability CVSS Score
  • ${vulnerability.DESC} – Vulnerability Description
  • ${vulnerability.REC} – Vulnerability Fix Recommendation

Exploit Step/Evidence Variables

These are used inside template.FINDINGS_DETAIL templates.

  • ${vulnerability.EXPLOIT} – Vulnerability Exploit Steps and screenshots.


Template Variables


These will insert DOCX templates into an existing base document.

  • ${template.FINDINGS} – List all findings details and recommendations
  • ${template.FINDINGS_DETAIL_HDR} – This is a base page that includes the ${template.FINDINGD_DETAIL} .This page is repeated for each vulnerability.
  • ${template.FINDINGS_DETAIL} – This includes the exploit steps and evidence for the each vulnerability.

All of the text generate from Faction is HTML. You can control how it is rendered in the DOCX format using the CSS editor in the Report Designer. You will need to set the css to match your report templates. Things like font and size will need to match. Images will need to forced to resize to the correct dimensions to fit in your reports.
