Latest changes to the Nessus Plugin submitted to Metasploit.

Late night last night I got the code cleaned up and submitted to msfdev.

Changes:

  • 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…)
