This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

It is possible to enumerate installed software.

Description :

This plugin lists software potentially installed on the remote host by
crawling the registry entries in :

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates

Note that these entries do not necessarily mean the applications are
actually installed on the remote host - they may have been left behind
by uninstallers, or the associated files may have been manually
removed.

Solution :

Remove any applications that are not compliant with your organization's
acceptable use and security policies.

Risk factor :

None
