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.

Best regards

	Jan-Oliver Wagner
