Scanning Ubuntu 18.04 w/ OpenSCAP questions

I recently started a new job and until today have never used OpenSCAP ( I’ve used many other vulnerability management tools)…

I have a question regarding the results of an openSCAP scan using OVAL data from ubuntu18.04.

Lots of the vulnerabilities that are reported are reported from ubuntu that they “needed” or are “differed” ([https://ubuntu.com/security/CVE-2018-20199](https://ubuntu.com/security/CVE-2018-20199)).

I’m wondering if there is a way to flag these vulnerabilities so they dont show up in the openSCAP report or if I can branch these off into their own sub reports…

Cheers, thanks a lot for the help, if you think this should be crossposted somewhere else, please let me know.
