Nessus 3.0.4 Available

Nessuslogo_3 Tenable Network Security is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Nessus 3.0.4 which includes changes to the nessusd daemon, specific changes for Nessus 3 running on Windows, specific changes for Nessus 3 running on OS X and changes to the Nessus command line client.

Tenable has also released Nessus 2.2.9 and Nessus Client 1.0.0.

These releases can be obtained by visiting http://www.nessus.org/download/ for downloading.

This new release contains the following enhancements and fixes :

Nessus 3.0.4 daemon

  • Processing the plugins after an update is faster
  • Better detection and handling of corrupt db files
  • It is now possible to use 'default' in a port range just like any other port (ie: '1,default,443,8080')
  • Avoid a deadlock in the main process when waiting for a sub process to die
  • nessus_tcp_scanner works much better when used over a slow network link
  • nessus_tcp_scanner now offers some options accessible thru the GUI
  • If 'log_whole_attack' is set to 'no' , do not print messages about shared sockets in the logs
  • Fixed the 'on_exit()' nasl function
  • Fixed 'nasl -k' which would sometimes not work properly
  • Avoid doing some un-necessary system calls, thus resulting in a lower load during a scan (esp. on Mac OS X)
  • Fixed a bug in ssh_func.inc which would prevent it from working against HP/UX
  • Binaries for Fedora Core 6

Nessus 3.0.4 Command line client

  • Logs much faster into a remote nessusd scanner
  • Fixed a possible memory corruption issue when creating a list of plugins to launch
  • Fixed a corruption of the .nessusrc files when receiving some plugin prefs ending by a space

Nessus 3.0.4 Mac OS X specific changes

  • Opening and closing a session window would stop all on-going scans
  • Creating a policy and defining it as 'shared' immediately saves the policies on disk

Nessus 3.0.4 Windows specific changes

  • Not a beta any more
  • Fixed file lock issues

Nessus 2.2.9 Daemon

  • Fixed a possible deadlock in synscan.nes
  • Avoid a deadlock in the main process when waiting for a sub process to die
