Microsoft Windows SMB Registry Not Fully Accessible Detection

This script is Copyright (C) 2000-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

Nessus had insufficient access to the remote registry.

Description :

Nessus did not access the remote registry completely, because full
administrative rights are required.

If you want the permissions / values of all the sensitive registry
keys to be checked, we recommend that you complete the 'SMB Login'
options in the 'Windows credentials' section of the policy with the
administrator login name and password.

Solution :

Use an administrator level account for scanning.

Risk factor :


Family: Windows
