nessus-update-plugins - updates the Nessus security checks
nessus-update-plugins [-v[v]] [-h]
The Nessus Security Scanner performs several security checks, each of
them being coded as an external plugin coded in NASL. As new security
holes are published every day, new plugins appear on the Nessus web-
site (www.nessus.org), and having an up-to-date nessusd server can be
difficult and time consuming.
The script nessus-update-plugins will fetch all the newest security
checks for you, install them at the proper location, and restart
nessusd(8) so that it take them into account.
nessus-update-plugins uses nessus-fetch(1) (part of nessus-core),
tar(1) and gzip(1) to do its job.
-v Will make nessus-update-plugins display the name of the newly
-h Show the help summary
If you are behind a web proxy, then read the manual page of nessus-
fetch to configure nessus-fetch with a proper proxy support.
