SynopsisRuns local commands over SSH that are used by plugins to find and characterize software that is not managed by the operating system.
DescriptionNessus plugins run OS commands locally on the target host to discover and characterize software that is not managed by the target operating system. This plugin runs those commands over SSH to determine whether there is any problem that might prevent the successful discovery of unmanaged software installations.
find cat grep ls
Problems that could interfere with the discovery of unmanaged software include scanning with weak permissions, incorrect chroot or sudo configuration, and missing or corrupt executables.
