Cleartext protocols settings

info Nessus Plugin ID 21744


This script is used to configure Nessus settings.


This script just sets global variables (telnet/rexec/rsh logins and passwords) that are used to perform host-level patch level checks.

You should avoid using these cleartext protocols when doing a scan, as Nessus will basically broadcast the password to every tested host.
