Tenable Announces the Release of Nessus 2.2.5

July 22, 2005

Columbia, MD

Nessus 2.2.5, a maintenance release, has been released. It fixes several minor bugs and contains some speed improvements.

Here is a quick change summary :

(Slight) Speed improvements:

  • Faster scan startup speed (at the expense of a slightly bigger memory usage).
  • Faster scans in general

Depending on the speed of your hard drive and the OS you're running on, you may
experience up to 15% speed improvement.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed the use of an uninitialized buffer in the shared socket code
  • Fixed some uninitialized variables in nessus_tcp_scanner
  • Fixed several null pointer dereferencements in libnasl
  • Several other minor bugs have been fixed (see bugs.nessus.org for details)

Misc:

  • New NASL function 'send_capture()'
  • nessusd rotates nessusd.messages on startup if the file is too big
  • Enhanced nessus_tcp_scanner
  • nessus-fetch now calls nessus-update-plugins upon registration

If you already have a copy of Nessus installed, please note that the Nessus installer makes clean upgrades - no need to uninstall the older version prior to upgrading, and no need to re-register to get a new activation code for the plugin feed.
