[Openvas-discuss] NVT: Too long options parameter OID:

Hi Micha,

the web server is running stable, and I didn't set safe-checks to "no". I just modified openvassd.conf (safe_checks = no) and now I am not getting any high critical threats now :) - so that scan looks like my others I previously did on that system, which just had the expected medium/low threats.
I guess for future security issues that show up all over sudden in my reports it's recommended do this then first again before getting headaches, right?

Thank you!

Did the web server crash (sometimes)? At http://pastebin.com/XpjJV12p
you could see the request send by www_too_long_options.nasl.

Is it intentional, that you have disabled "safe checks'?
