Hello, the OpenVAS developers are happy to announce that openvas-plugins 1.0.2 is released.
This is a maintenance release with some fixes, new scripts and cleanups. It is recommended to update your installation with this release to get rid of a ugly behaviour of the snychronisation routine (see below). Apart from this, Nikto users will get an improved and updated NASL script to comfortably run Nikto via OpenVAS. Main changes are: * Bugfix in "openvas-nvt-sync": Wrong quoting in this script created strange directory structure in OpenVAS server installation. This is fixed now. In case you started this script as shipped by openvas-plugins 1.0.1, you should manually remove the directory, e.g.: # cd /usr/lib/openvas # ls -l (watch-out for the directory named '"') # rm -rf \" * 8 new Debian Local Security Checks contributed by www.securityspace.com * 6 new Windows Local Security Checks and generic Linux Security Checks, by DN-Systems. * Updated integration of Nikto: Adaptions for new Nikto 2.0 and further improvements to run Nikto via OpenVAS (nikto.nasl). Also, the obsolete C-Plugin for Nikto (nikto.nes) has now been finally removed. * Improved framework for Windows Local Security Checks based in smbclient. * Various other small fixes.
