Incorrect scanTime in JSON file with mass testing #1246

If mass testing is performed and a single JSON file is created for all of the results, then the final entry in the JSON file (scanTime) will be incorrect:

"scanTime"  : "Scan interrupted"


,         {
              "id"           : "scanTime",
              "ip"           : "/",
              "port"         : "443",
              "severity"     : "WARN",
              "finding"      : "Scan interrupted"

The "Scan interrupted" occurs because fileout_json_footer() believes the scan was interrupted if SCAN_TIME is 0. This works in normal testing since SCAN_TIME is set at the end of lets_roll(). However, in mass testing lets_roll() isn't called (except to initialize) and so SCAN_TIME is never set.

Note also that in the case of the flat JSON output, the entry contains "ip" and "port", which are inappropriate since the entry is not specific to a particular server.
