Nessus Sample Reports. Here you can find several reports generated using the Nessus® vulnerability scanner. Nessus reports can display vulnerabilities in. a Nessus scan, this plugin reports . See A Nessus vulnerability scan report can be delivered in these formats: This is the first page of an HTML report, or the second page of a PDF report.

The language of the report is in English. It is a detailed listing containing the complete description of vulnerabilities including note and overrides with all references and cross references. It is a neutral document without any further references to Greenbone or the Greenbone Security Manager.

The document can also be used offline and the language being used is English. It provides an overview of the discovered results in table view in CSV format and in German. It does not have support for notes, overrides and some additional information. Like the HTML format it is neutral. TXT This creates a text file. This format is especially useful when being sent by Email.

XML The report is being exported in the native xml format. Contrary to the other formats this format contains all results and does not format them at all. Greenbone includes many report plugins by default. The report plugins define the format of the reports to be exported.

Many report plugins reduce the available data in order to display it in a meaningful way. To do so use the Container Task see also section Container Task. The overview see figure Greenbone includes many report plugins by default. For every plugin in the individual columns the following information is being displayed: Extension: The file name of the downloaded report through the respective plugin is comprised of the UUID unique internal ID of the report and this extension.

Among others, the extension supports the browser to start a compatible application in case the specified content type is not recognized. Content Type: The content type specifies the format in use and is being transmitted when being downloaded.

That way a compatible application can be launched by the browser directly. Additionally the content type is important internally: It is being used to offer suitable plugins within its context. Trust: Some plugins only consist of a data transformation while others execute more complex operations and also use support programs.

To avoid misuse the plugins are digitally signed. If the signature is authentic and the publisher trusted, it is ensured that the plugin exists in the exact format as certified by the publisher.

The verification does not occur automatically rather than manually with the verify icon. The date of the verification is saved automatically.

Following type of credential are required for policy. This is also include MongoDB Databse. Policy has been saved you can use at the time of Scan.

Creating, launching and Scheduling Scan At the top near policies you will find another option scan click on scan and in the left side bar you find New Scan button click on it, you can create new policy, scanner templates, or you can select user created policies that you have created earlier.

There are three sections under scan setting General : Name : Provide any name for scan to remember later. Description: Enter the short description about scan Folder: My scanner by default Scanner: Type of scanner local or remote Targets: most important section, targets. You can enter single IP addres Schedule: you scan schedule your scan to perform scanning time to time, by default it is disabled so enable it.

Once enabled you can find out following options; Launch: you can select you launch option once, daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.

Starts on: Select here start scanning data and time Time zone: Select time Zone Summary: summary will be display Email Notification: Here you should enter the email address single or multiple where you want to send notification. To proper work of this section your SMTP should be configure.

If a Nessus scan is configured with SSH credentials for a regular user account, basic information about a system can be retrieved. Once Nessus is able to create a session with SSH, Nessus will try to elevate privileges to retrieve further information about the system.

Using this report, analysts can identify systems that did not have adequate permissions to do in-depth scanning. Details are also provided to assist analysts in remediating the SSH credential issue. To prevent confusion, this report only addresses failures when Nessus attempts to elevate privileges from a scan; this report does not address attempts by users who try to elevate privileges and are unsuccessful. Exploit Frameworks Organizations of all size are faced with the challenges of maintaining a successful patch management program.

In many cases, vulnerability scans and software updates are only performed on a monthly basis. The lack of visibility into the network and systems in between active scans can result in an increased risk to the organization. This point-in-time method of scanning and updating can also lead to systems being missed if the systems are not on the network or available during the scan window. A single vulnerability is often times the only necessary piece needed to gain a foothold in an environment.

As an example, a network could be compromised due to a vulnerability found in out-of-date office productivity software, a PDF viewer, or a browser. Exploitation framework tools contain capabilities to detect and exploit these vulnerabilities.

The vendors of these software packages are continually adding exploits to their platforms. Internal security teams and malicious actors alike can use the same tools to detect and exploit vulnerabilities. As some of the software exploitation tools are free, the bar of entry is minimal and can open up organizations to easy to perform attacks.

This report can assist analysts in identifying vulnerabilities detected within the organization. Specifically, the report detects vulnerabilities that can be exploited by exploitation frameworks. Analysts can focus on the exploitable vulnerabilities to help reduce the risk to the organization. These specific exploitable vulnerabilities can present a heightened risk depending on the vulnerability and location in the organization. Analysts using this report can be more efficient at prioritizing efforts by knowing more about the vulnerabilities present in the organization.

Within this report, analysts can find detailed information relating to the vulnerabilities exploitable by exploitation frameworks. The detailed information includes the host, vulnerability, and related information for each exploitation tool. There are also tables reporting vulnerabilities by plugin family, Microsoft bulletins, and CVE.

Depending on the reporting metrics used within the organization, analysts can potentially compare the information from this report to their metrics for quick analysis.

Information is also provided to assist analysts and administrators in fixing and mitigating the vulnerabilities. Exploitable by Malware Malware presents a risk to any organization and comes packaged in many forms.

Malware can exploit weaknesses and vulnerabilities to make software or hardware perform actions not originally intended. Using this report, organizations can gain operational awareness of systems on the network with exploitable vulnerabilities.

Analysts need to either mitigate the risk from vulnerabilities or remediate them, but prioritization is a necessary task, as not all vulnerabilities present an equal danger. Focusing on vulnerabilities actively exploited by malware helps to reduce the risk to the organization and offers prioritization guidance as to which vulnerabilities to remediate first. Analysts can use this report along with the knowledge of the software in the organization to better defend themselves.

Vulnerabilities can also be exploited through common software applications. An attacker can use these software products to exploit vulnerabilities present in an organization.

Products such as Metasploit, Core Impact, and exploits listed in ExploitHub can be used by anyone to perform an attack against vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities that can be exploited through these means are highlighted in this report. Malicious Code Prevention Report Malware can significantly impact the health and safety of critical systems within an organization. The number of new malware discovered on a daily basis continues to increase, and malware writers are constantly tweaking their code to keep it from being detected.

Using malicious code, potentially massive attacks can be accomplished with relative ease.

Network defenders need to use a defense-in-depth approach to both protect against malware infections and also discover and address any malware that gets through defenses. Inside this report, analysts will obtain the information needed to identify compromised hosts that have been infected with malware.

Additional information on virus detections and interactions with known hostile IP addresses will highlight the presence of malware on network assets. Scans will determine whether anti-virus engines and virus definitions are running and up-to-date. Analysts will be able to obtain information on outdated or misconfigured anti-virus clients on the network.

Systems are scanned for bad AutoRuns and Scheduled Tasks that may be associated with malware. Using the information presented within this report, organizations are able to quickly identify and remediate issues associated with malware or malicious activity on systems throughout the enterprise.

The IT team can now easily communicate the specific systems with missing patches to executives. Instead of counting the number of vulnerabilities, the plugin lists applications that need to be upgraded.

In addition, this report can help analysts monitor the application of Microsoft Security Bulletin patches. The elements of this report displays information on missing Microsoft Security Bulletin patches, in order to provide a clear picture of the true state of Microsoft patch management.

Prioritize Hosts What systems need attention now?Essentially zero-day vulnerabilities could be in effect for applications that are no longer supported. The report covers a day scanning history and provides a breakdown of various Windows scan issues and SSH failures, as well as general credential failures.

This report provides an easy to understand executive summary showing the current count of vulnerabilities based on CVE release data and collection methods. The sample scripts are provided AS IS without warranty of any kind.
