SMB Scope

info Nessus Plugin ID 10917
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


This plugin configures certain SMB settings for use with other plugins.


This plugin configures Nessus so that it knows if it should query local information on each host or information pertaining to the domain (ie: requests will be forwarded to the PDC).

If you test a single workstation, you want information about the domain. If you test the whole network, including the PDC, you won't want redundant information.

See the plugins preferences panel for details.
