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
* Improved framework for Windows Local Security
Checks based in smbclient.
* Various other small fixes.
