    Thumbs up Update to Nikto - Now Version 2.02 ~

    Hello fellow remote-exploiterz (with a z )


    Recently Nikto was updated to version 2.02 and not much
    new has been made of changes in it, except a removal of
    some experimental things and some other things.
    (look in the changelog for yourself if you want to )

    However i think it would be cool if it would be included in
    the final version of BackTrack 3

I began to wander uphill on the next mountain of life while I knew it would be much harder than the previous mountain. [/I]- MaXe[/quote]

    I think there is a update flag in nikto as well.

    bt~#nikto --update or something like that.

    Yes it's just this:
    Code:
    bt ~ # nikto -update
    I just ran it and it said a new version had come out, then i ran a version check:
    Code:
    bt ~ # nikto -Version
    And found out that the only 2 things that "didn't" get updated was:
    Nikto_main and nikto_outdated.plugin.

    Though nikto_outdated.plugin is not important as it just tells Nikto is outdated,
    but the Nikto_main might include a few corrections etc. I haven't checked 100%
    but i checked the versions nonetheless and found those 2 differences when just
    running the -update parameter and then downloading the newest package and
    then running it with nikto.pl -Version to see if there was any difference in all the
    versions. (and there was, not sure if the "Nikto_main" was edited tho)

    I just want the developers and other people to make sure they might have to
    download the newest nikto, and then extract it to their current nikto directory
    and also allowing the old files to be overwritten

    So this thread was actually more like a suggestion to make sure we got the
    newest or allmost newest versions in the final version of BackTrack 3
    (ya sorry, i know i'm a bit demanding hehe)
