Fedora Security :: Nessus - Nessusd Returned An Empty Report

May 25, 2009

After running
nessus-fetch --register <Activation Code>

I got
nessus-update-plugins could not be found in your $PATH
When I try to run a scan on localhost I get the message "nessusd returned an empty report".

Here's the entry in nessusd.messages
[Mon May 25 00:30:03 2009][13188] user mickey.harvey : testing ( [13189]
[Mon May 25 00:30:04 2009][13189] Finished testing Time : 0.03 secs
[Mon May 25 00:30:04 2009][13188] user mickey.harvey : test complete

[Mon May 25 00:30:04 2009][13188] user mickey.harvey : Kept alive connection

I would like to get the scan working and make sure that nessus is updating the plugins. I have been looking though the nessus documentation and tried searching on Goggle without any success.

OpenSUSE Network :: Using Nessus To Evaluate Security Of Web Server?

May 7, 2010

I am using nessus to evaluate the security of a web server. I have started up the nessus daemon on the server, here's the netstat output:

Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 *:ldap *:* LISTEN 3565/slapd
tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 4026/mysqld

tcp 0 0 *:smtp *:* LISTEN 3636/master
tcp 0 0 *:https *:* LISTEN 13855/httpd2-prefor
udp 0 0 *:sunrpc *:* 3463/portmap

It's listening on the default nessus port 9390. I am trying to connect to the nessus server instance using Open-VAS Client. I have generated the client and server certificates, I have pointed the client at the User Certificate File, the User Key File and I have a CA cert. I have created a user account on the nessus server. The problem is that when I try and log in from the Open-VAS client it keeps saying it can't connect. Is there anywhere I can check to see if it's being caught in a firewall, or where I can see if the connection is even making it to the server..

Fedora Security :: Having A Script That Will Report Whenever A File Is Copied?

May 12, 2009

have a script that will report whenever a file is copied? Some useful information would be the time/date, user, and destination whenever a file is copied. I've looked into the stat command, but it does not distinguish between copy and access.

Fedora Security :: NTPD Error Report At Startup Of Machine

Jan 25, 2011

I've been trying to make sense out of this error report. I get it every once in a while on startup of my machine.

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ntpd access to a leaked netlink_route_socket
file descriptor.

Detailed Description:
[ntpd has a permissive type (ntpd_t). This access was not denied.]
SELinux denied access requested by the ntpd command. It looks like this is either a leaked descriptor or ntpd output was redirected to a file it is not allowed to access. Leaks usually can be ignored since SELinux is just closing the leak and reporting the error. The application does not use the descriptor, so it will run properly. If this is a redirection, you will not get output in the netlink_route_socket. You should generate a bugzilla on selinux-policy, and it will get routed to the appropriate package. You can safely ignore this avc.

Allowing Access:
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ [URL]

Additional Information:

Fedora Security :: Log Files Empty - System Does Not Allow Root To Login ?

Feb 2, 2010

For a month or so now, I have been enabling ssh and opening port 22. I cron'ed the start and stop commands to leave them open only a few hours a day. After a bit, I checked my logs to find that some IP or another was attempting to brute force my root account.

I took little real threat by the offense.

(1) my system does not allow root to login and

(2) it would cut them off sooner than later when my system issued the stop command.

fast forward

Today I log in to find that all of my log files, as viewed from the gnome log file viewer, were empty of entries from about noon yesterday and prior.

Though I haven't noticed anything at all out of the ordinary with my system, I would like to get more opinions on the matter. Would there be any conceivable way that this was an automatic system routine, a clean up action of something? Additionally, if I was indeed the victim of a hack, what can I do to further protect my system (keeping in mind that I do want to access my system via ssh from time to time)?

Fedora :: Nessus Configuration - Daemon Login Failed

Fedora 12
Nessus: 2.2.11-5
Authent: using passwrd
Client: GTK version
User: added with no rules
nessus-mkcrt: has been ran
Hosts.allow: hole made for localhost to nessusd with nessusd: (this took care of my ssl error)

Upon trying to log into daemon I get the cert then prompted with failed login. I am also not getting anything showing up in my logviewer (gnome). For most other daemons I have had them automagicaly pop up (denyhosts for example) how can I get nessus to show up as well.

Networking :: Cannot Connect To WEP With Empty Security Key

Jul 13, 2011

I am running KDE4 on Debian Squeeze. Networkmanager works fine, for both WEP and WPA. Connects automatically etc, no problem. The only problem exists when I want to connect to a WEP network which has an empty security key. I used to be able to connect before I used networkmanager using iwconfig and specify iwconfig wlan0 key off. I tried in networkmanager to specify both no security and WEP with an empty passkey. However, none works. Is there maybe somewhere a setting which precludes connecting because it is considered unsafe?

Ubuntu Security :: Secure Empty Trash Bin

Ubuntu Security :: Trashinfo Files Not Deleted When Empty Trash?

May 24, 2010

I don't know whether this is a bug or feature. But I find the fact that the Trash in Gnome doesn't delete trashinfo files a security liability.

I found in ./local/share/Trash/info thousands of .trashinfo files named exactly like the files deleted and each one contains the date of deletion.

I thought when I empty the trash bin every record of the files were removed. I understand that there are forensic ways to recover data and rm isn't very secure with journaled file systems, but forensic recovery isn't 100% and if the disk is written over several times the data is gone.

Here you have a permanent list of all the files you've deleted, without you knowing and the dates of deletion. IMO that's too much information.

Update: Weird after removing the files manually and then trying to delete files again using the trash I found no .trashinfo files, this time. So they were probably leftover files, but they didn't have a different owner/permission. Could this have been an issue and now fixed? (running Lucid)

Ubuntu :: How To Open Nessus - No Interface

Jun 28, 2010

I successfully installed the nessus. It was .deb file . first of all, I type
"sudo dpkg -i Nessus-4.2.2-ubuntu910_amd64.deb".
The output of this command was "You can start nessusd by typing /etc/init.d/nessusd start"
That's why I type that command and I get " $Starting Nessus : ." There is nothing like interface of this software, when I try to search GUI from synaptic package manager. So What should I do ?

Fedora :: Should File A New Bug Report?

May 17, 2010

I've been having problems with pdf files made using latex (dvi->ps->pdf). I found a reported bug in bugzilla by searching the error message and made a comment. The 'problem' is that the bug is filed under evince, but I'm pretty sure it is in ghostscript. Should I file another bug in the ghostscript section, or will the clever people at bugzilla work it out once they get round to this particular bug (it's marked as low priority)?

The bug report can be found here[URL]..The bug is more annoying than anything else, so any advice is welcome.

Software :: Unable To Start Nessus Daemon

Sep 22, 2010

I have a backtrack distro on a usb stick. I wish to do the following :-
(a) Partition the usb stick to have a ext3 filesystem, so that the instln may be persistent for the changes. But the fdisk utility creates partitions as dev/sdb1p1 and /dev/sdb1p2. These however, could not be accessed by mkfs utility. How to overcome this problem.
(b) Next , I downloaded the nessus .lzm file and put it in the /base/module dir. But unable to start the nessus daemon. It suggests an error regarding unable to create /opt/nessus and /etc/nessus/nessusd.conf. I think starting nessus as root would help but the problem persists!

Fedora :: Extremely Vague Bugs: Where To Report

Jun 30, 2010

I've been running Fedora since core 6, am on 13 now, always with KDE. I upgraded but also did fresh installs.I'm typing, in oo.org, Kile or Kate. Suddenly, without warning, the File menu is selected - mind you, without me clicking the mouse or pressing alt-F or anything. Just typing text.

Or how about this: I'm typing again. All of a sudden the direction changes from the normal left to right to the Hebrew right to left. I think I only pressed ctrl-s to save... Did I?

I can't reproduce any of it, although it seems to be related to Kate based editors and using alt-tab to switch windows. Like the alt key hangs digitally. Is it Linux, Fedora, KDE or Kate? (it can't be the computer, this has happened to me on several distinct machines) Where do I report this, to get a fix?

Fedora :: 13 On Laptop Compiz Crash Report

Oct 28, 2010

just installed Fedora 13 on a pentium 4 laptop by Dell, with 1 Gb RAM.

As I opt for Compiz, it cannot start, there is a black pop up saying Crash, and some numbers follow. How can this be fixed?

Should I install KDE?

Is there an update of software?

I can opt for Compiz but worry that it will be faulty. That is the second attempt also produced the crash warning pop up but gave me the option of keeping it or going back after about twenty seconds, with the figures on the screen. I played it safe. Also can I try it, and manually go back?

Error report shows Compiz killed by Signal 11 SIGSEGV, this was added after post 9.

Ubuntu Installation :: Add A User,the Nessus Daemon Is Running On My Machine?

Nov 20, 2010

after some tweaking i managed to get nessus installed on my machine. However i'm running into an issue when trying to add a user.The nessus daemon is running on my machine, i've registered. I think everything is peachy in that regard, but when i run:

zachadmin@ubuntu:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/nessusd restart
$Shutting down Nessus : .
$Starting Nessus : .[code].....

Obviously the command not found is my error, from what i understand there isn't a default user placed in the first time.So essentially i have thie program installed, but i can't access it.
