NessusClient 3.0.1 released

NessusClient 3 is the official GUI for the standalone version of Nessus. Its key features are :

  • Real-time results. No need to wait until the end of a scan to start analyzing the findings of Nessus
  • Document based. Save your policies, scan results and scan targets into a single file
  • New XML based report format. The new ’.nessus’ file format saves into a single XML file your scan policies, scan targets and scan results
  • Multiple connections. NessusClient can connect to several scanners at the same time
  • Consistent interface. The same interface exists on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux

This update contains the following fixes :

  • Exporting a policy to the old .nessusrc format now generates a file which properly configures the port scanners and plugin preferences
  • On Windows, importing scan policies from NessusGUI.exe properly enables the plugins
