Hi Daniel, thanks for your answer!! I will stick to my Openvas4 then. Hope
we can migrate easily from one to the other, after all the bugs are solved.

> segfaulting when OpenVAS manager does the initial rebuild of the database.
> - In Centos 5.x and 6.x libmicrohttps doesn't support SSL, and
> openvas-nvt-sync corrupts the downloaded .nasl somehow, so openvas-scanner
> fails while initially loading the plugins.
> Jan-Oliver has recently posted a message indicating they are going to
> release a working OpenVAS 5 VM. My recommendation would be to wait for it
> and then check. In the meantime, stick to 4 version, or you are going to
