NAME

       nessus-update-plugins    -   updates   the   Nessus   security   checks
       automatically

SYNOPSIS

       nessus-update-plugins [-v[v]] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTION

       -v     Will  make  nessus-update-plugins  display the name of the newly
              installed plugins.

       -h     Show the help summary

PROXIES

       If you are behind a web proxy, then read the  manual  page  of  nessus-
       fetch to configure nessus-fetch with a proper proxy support.
