Security: Nessus Vulnerability Scanner + legal, free, vulnerability definitions

  • Nessus download
  • On Nessus server, first download the Alien Vault NASL feed downloader, which is actually just rsync, md5sum and ssh and the cygwin dependencies to make them run on Windows.
  • Secondly, modify the update_feed.bat to also include the following rsync server from OpenVAS:

    @echo off
    
    set nessusDir="%ProgramFiles%\Tenable\Nessus\plugins\scripts"
    set feed=rsync://feed.alienvault.com:/nvt-feed
    echo "Synchonizing NVTs via RSYNC ... %feed%"
    rsync -av --progress %feed% %nessusDir%
    echo.
    set feed=rsync://rsync.openvas.org:/nvt-feed
    echo "Synchonizing NVTs via RSYNC ... %feed%"
    rsync -av --progress %feed% %nessusDir%
    pause
