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.
Hello, Does anyone have used port scanners like nmap, or vulnerability scaners like nessus, openvas, etc. while providing internet via computer? I'm using the nano on Ubuntu 14.04 using wp6.sh. I've succesfully deauthed some clients (i'm still learning so it's not perfect) and bumped them to connect to the pineapple but when i try to use any scanner using the pineapple's ip, the results are as if i was scanning a host that's not connected. So, nmap shows "scanned X ips, 0 hosts where up", nessus and openvas finish the task with zero results and metasploit can't complete any exploits because the host is down. I know that the os gets the pineapple as another interface but i don't think that's the problem because other times i've succesfully scanned hosts while connected to three different networks (using ethernet, wifi with the integrated card and wifi with an external card). I don't know if its because of the way the wps6.sh script works, because tbh i dont know how it works, but that's the problem i'm facing right now. Anyone that can help me? if you need any other data, please ask. thanks.
