CGI Generic Tests HTTP Errors
Info Nessus Plugin ID 40406
SynopsisNessus encountered errors while running its generic CGI attacks.
DescriptionNessus ran into trouble while running its generic CGI tests against the remote web server (for example, connection refused, timeout, etc). When this happens, Nessus aborts the current test and switches to the next CGI script on the same port or to another web server. Thus, test results may be incomplete.
SolutionRescan with a longer network timeout or less parallelism for example, by changing the following options in the scan policy :
- Network -> Network Receive Timeout (check_read_timeout)
- Options -> Number of hosts in parallel (max_hosts)
- Options -> Number of checks in parallel (max_checks)
