All informational level vulnerabilities will be deleted at install. However, informational level vulnerabilities will be search-able and accessible from assessment results.

Asset History will link directly to the specific asset in the assessment selected, rather than just the assessment.

When the toggle is ON, informational Vulnerabilities will be imported into the Active View from that point on, it is not retroactive.
