Understand Snyk Container CLI results
When Snyk Container detects vulnerabilities, they are presented in the output:
Vulnerabilities detected with Snyk Container
Each vulnerability contains the following information:
Vulnerabilities appear in reverse order of severity so that you can see the most important issues first, with limited scrolling required.
Snyk also reports the total dependencies scanned for known vulnerabilities and the total number of vulnerabilities.
Example of total dependencies scanned and the issues found
Snyk groups together vulnerabilities that are found in multiple packages. This helps you focus on the number of vulnerabilities rather than the instances only.
Example of recommendations to upgrade the base image
This provides a level of situational awareness, showing the vulnerability counts in minor and major upgrades or in alternative base images, which might have fewer vulnerabilities.
