Nessus 3.1.9 (beta) available

Hi,

Tenable is proud to announce the immediate availability of Nessus
3.1.9 beta.


The main changes compared to 3.1.5 are the following :

- Debian 4 and Fedora 8 builds
- Fixed several issues with counting the maximum number of TCP
sessions in parallel
- New nessusd.conf options :
- If 'stop_scan_on_hang' is set in nessusd.conf (or in the user
nessusrc file), the scan of a host will be stopped if it has shown no
progress for more than 20mn
- The option 'nasl_log_type' in nessusd.conf can be used to
prevent NASL from logging anything into nessusd.dump (nasl_log_type =
none)

- During a scan, the number of TCP sessions in parallel shows up if
log_whole_attack is set
- Fixed bug#1653 : the Debian Nessus 3 package would conflict with the
Debian GPL nessusd 2 package
- Fixed bug #1661 -- nessusd not properly starting up on Debian 4 (http://bugs.nessus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1661
)
- The 'nessus' command-line tool can now import .nessus files
- 'nessuscmd' can upload ssh keys and .audit files on the remote server
- Improved nessus_tcp_scanner




As mentioned earlier, the 'nessus' command can now process .nessus
files. Such files can contains several policies as well as several
reports :

To list the policies available in a .nessus file :

$ nessus --dot-nessus Report.nessus --list-policies
List of policies contained in Report.nessus:
- 'My Policy'



To list the reports available in a .nessus file :

$ nessus --dot-nessus Report.nessus --list-reports
List of reports contained in Report.nessus:
- '08/01/01 04:58:15 PM - My Policy'
- '08/01/02 03:10:00 PM - My Policy'



To perform a scan with the policy 'My Policy' :

$ nessus --dot-nessus Report.nessus --policy 'My Policy' localhost
1241 yourLogin yourPassword


-> This command will add the new report in the file 'Report.nessus'.
To store the results in a different file:

$ nessus --dot-nessus Report.nessus --policy 'My Policy' localhost
1241 yourLogin yourPassword NewReport.nessus



To convert a .nessus report to, say, html :


$ nessus --dot-nessus Report.nessus -i '08/01/02 03:10:00 PM - My
Policy' -o Report.html




We're slowly approaching the official 3.2 release, feedback on this
version is more than welcome.


Nessus 3.1.9 can be downloaded from http://www.nessus.org/download/?product=nessus32-beta



Thanks,
-- Renaud
