    About: Nessus is a remote security scanner for Linux, BSD, Solaris, and
    other Unices. It is multi-threaded and plug-in-based, has a GTK interface,
    and performs over 500 remote security checks. It allows for reports to be
    generated in HTML, XML, LaTeX, and ASCII text, and suggests solutions for
    security problems.
    Changes: EGD support for OpenSSL added. Memory leaks in nessusd and a
    security problem with1.1.x series where anybody with a shell on the nessusd
    host could log in have been fixed. KB items now have a timestamp associated
    with them and KB is not altered when a ping fails.
