OVAL = Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language

It is for reporting purposes only. You may be able to remediate some of the issues using KBOX Scripting.

As stated it is for reporting only and you can use scripting to fix issues but more commonly Patching is used to apply patches that match the CVE number associated to the vulnerability and to the Patch. I would recommend using the OVAL information to target your most exposed systems with the KBOX patching engine and rerun the OVAL scan to see if the number of vulnerabilities have gone down.

*remember the OVAL scan is intrusive so you may not want to run it during business hours.
