Openvas in the data source is osvdb? I see is empty? There is no information, how do I build it?

  • shell,

    When we switched from Nessus to Openvas, we left the Nessus-detector name in place for backward compatibility. 

    You can follow the directions as written and use this reference datasource type. It will work for Vulnerability Scan data as expected.
  • Sorry I'm late, thanks for the answer.

    Do you refer to the reference data source type as osvdb? Should I use it? But it's empty. There aren't any rules?

    How can I generate data for OpenVAS scan results?

    I hope you can help me, thanks!
