Hi all, i'm undertaking a project to determine which vulnerability scanning tools within Kali Linux are best suited for the job, there were three tools tested and these were, Nikto, Sparta and OpenVAS. The results that these scans returned when scanning metasploitable 2 with a Kali linux machine are as follows: Metasploitable 2 Nikto 15 Sparta 46 OpenVAS 144 These results are solely the number of vulnerabilities that were returned, OpenVAS seems to be the right choice but im looking for feedback to back up these results of whether this is accurate? or maybe whether the other tools have features that may give them an advantage over the other. Any feedback would be most welcome. Thanks.
