Here is my quick edit:

 



"OpenVAS (OpenSource Vulnerability Assesment Scanner) is a GPL fork of the
Nessus security scanner currently controlled by Tenable Network Security.
OpenVAS provides a totally open licensed, freely distributable scanning
engine as well as a complete library of plugins and tests which will scan
for particular vulnerabilities.  Starting with the last Nessus version
released under a GPL license OpenVAS will continue to develop and refine the
underlying engine as well as expand  the plugin script library and
functionality"

 

Hope that helps
