Additional DNS Hostnames

info Nessus Plugin ID 46180

Synopsis

Nessus has detected potential virtual hosts.

Description

Hostnames different from the current hostname have been collected by miscellaneous plugins. Nessus has generated a list of hostnames that point to the remote host. Note that these are only the alternate hostnames for vhosts discovered on a web server.

Different web servers may be hosted on name-based virtual hosts.

Solution

If you want to test them, re-scan using the special vhost syntax, such as :
