Microsoft Windows SMB Registry Not Fully Accessible Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 10428


Nessus had insufficient access to the remote registry.


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.


Use an administrator level account for scanning.
