Late night last night I got the code cleaned up and submitted to msfdev.
Should probably be in the Metasploit svn in a few days, I know those guys are super busy with an upcoming release.
In the mean time you can download it from the GitHub – http://github.com/Zate/Nessus-Bridge-for-Metasploit
- Streaming Parser for Nessus V2 Reports.
- This streams the file from the nessus server and processes each host as it finds it instead of loading the entire file into memory which can be very intensive on large reports. Performance is much better though it can take a while to interate through large numbers of hosts. (more…)

I’m a google fan, I admit it fully. I use lots of their services, I like their stuff and I am at peace with their devling into my personal space. It’s gonna happen, unless you choose to live your life 100% offline, you are trading personal privacy for access to services.
Their latest creation (which has been around for a while, just not public) is their very own URL shortener called goo.gl. It does some of the usual things, it tracks metrics and it does one other things I think is really cool. It creates a QR code for your url.
Here is one I created earlier (ha, sounds like a cooking show).
http://goo.gl/YgTu.qr for the url http://goo.gl/YgTu
Very cool. I like QR codes. For those of us with smart phones, a simple scan of the code and you can open the site.
I do wish the service had an easy way to copy the new urls to the clipboard though.
So what else can it do? Well #1, I want it to tie in with their safe browsing serivce (http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=google.com) so that I can’t create a URL to a known bad site. I’d also like them to regularly scan the urls and disable those that link to malware. There are lots of URL shorteners and they definately pose a security risk and it’s about time someone took the step of removing bad URL’s.

So one of the major “issues” with the Nessus for Metasploit Plugin right now is that it does not handle large reports well. Not even the usual db_import_nessus handles large reports well and this is because it reads the entire file in one big blob then parses it.
The nexpose importer and the nmap importer both use REXML Stream Processors.
So tonight I copied the nmap_xml.rb file and am working on making it process Nessus v2 files. I am hoping that both the Nessus plugin, and the db_import will benefit from these changes.
I’ve been looking at it for a few days and kind of avoiding it because it’s difficult and is going to require large portions of my time fumbling through learning how the current one works enough to know how/what to modify.
Well turns out it’s simpler than I thought. (more…)
