When the vulnerable host arrives in fixed state, its status is automatically changed to resolved.

Note: If all vulnerable hosts are resolved, the vulnerability is resolved.

You can manually change the status to reopened.
Reopened When a fixed vulnerable host is manually reopened, its status is changed to reopened. You can manually change the status to exception or resolved.
