    Default OpenVAS vs Nessus

    Hi

    I've used Nessus off and on but never in ernest. I am now considering buying the plugin feed.

    I've recently started to check out backtrack and noticed that it came with OpenVAS which is said to be a fork of Nessus.

    Does anyone have any opinion on Nesus vs OpenVAS?

    Thanks in advance.

    There's already a thread about that here.
    Just search for it.

    Sarcasm will get you no where on this forum.
    Further more it is not our job to tell you which is a better product.
    One costs money for all features the other is free as in speech. One has more "feeds" than the other but that is do to the price.
    If you have the need and money then by the product if you are using nessus as a hobby then stick with the free versions.

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
