Means that the item checked is fine and that you do not need to worry
Means that you should know the item status, but probably it is fine. A port
opened, for example.
Means that a security problem was found, but it does not provides a high risk
for your system.
Things are getting worse and you should start to worry about these itens.
You have an important security hole/problem on your system and you
should fix it NOW or run and save your life.
