SynopsisNessus was able to log in to the remote host using the provided credentials, but encountered difficulty running commands used to find unmanaged software.
DescriptionNessus found problems running commands on the target host which are used to find software that is not managed by the operating system.
Details of the issues encountered are reported by this plugin.
Failure to properly execute commands used to find and characterize unmanaged software on the target host can lead to scans that do not report known vulnerabilities. There may be little in the scan results of unmanaged software plugins to indicate the missing availability of the source commands except audit trail messages.
Commands used to find unmanaged software installations might fail for a variety of reasons, including:
* Inadequate scan user permissions,
* Failed privilege escalation,
* Intermittent network disruption, or
* Missing or corrupt executables on the target host.
Please address the issues reported here and redo the scan.
