Nessus scanner protocol error
Troubleshoot accessible ranges in tenable.sc
One of my Nessus Vulnerability Scanners, which is operated by Security Center, had an issue the other day. One of the Nessus scanners had the status “Plugin Out of Sync” in Security Center. When I tried to push the plugins to the Nessus scanner from the Security Center, I received a “Connection timed out” status error. So, essentially, the connection had a latency problem. Since the Nessus scanner and the Security Center are in separate states, there is a lot of latency. There were simply too many plugins to be forced over the wire by Security Center because I had just installed this Nessus scanner. I manually copied the plugins to the Nessus scanner to fix the error. The plugins were then manually loaded into the Nessus scanner. I haven’t had this problem since I did this.
How to add a nessus scanner to securitycenter
I have a nessus scanner and a docker container running tenable.sc. The container was not made by me. Docker for Windows is what I’m using. When I specify [name] as the host name and port 8834, I get this error, and when I specify 0.0.0.0 as the IP address, I get a link error. Docker confirms that the security center’s address is localhost:443 and the scanner’s address is 8834. I tried changing the passwords, but that didn’t help. I’m at a loss for what else to try. 3 answers 100 percentsavehidereportsavehidereportsavehidereportsa Voted up To leave a comment, please log in or build an account. Sign UpSign InSort by Best

This is typically due to the target Windows device’s network discovery and/or file and printer sharing being disabled. This can be allowed by doing one of the following (please note that only domain or private network profiles should be enabled, not guest or public network profiles): 1. Open Explorer and go to the Network tab. The network discovery and file sharing features have been disabled. The machines and equipment on the network are not available. To make a shift, simply click… Authorize the User Account Control (UAC) prompt by turning on network discovery and file sharing.
3. Go to Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security/Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security/Inbound Rules in Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) and build enable rules for predefined options. Sharing of files and printers, as well as network discovery
The scan will disclose INFO if there is a problem with the credentials setup. Authentication Failure – Local Checks Not Run (annoyingly, this only happens in the last minute or two of the scan) and a line saying It was not possible to log into the remote host via smb would appear in the section Output (invalid credentials).

In certain cases, Nessus versions 8.11.0 and earlier were found to hold sessions open for longer than the allowed time. Due to a lack of proper session expiration, attackers with local access can be able to log into an already active browser session. Published: A Stored XSS vulnerability was discovered in Nessus 8.10.0 and earlier due to incorrect input validation during scan configuration. This vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in a user’s session if they were authenticated. In Nessus 8.11.0, Tenable introduced additional input validation mechanisms to resolve this problem. Published: A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in Nessus versions 8.6.0 and earlier due to insufficient validation of specific imported scan forms. An authenticated, remote attacker might theoretically use this flaw to make a Nessus scanner unresponsive for a short period of time. Published: An problem was discovered in Nessus 8.5.2 and earlier on Windows platforms, where some device files could be overwritten arbitrarily, possibly causing a denial of service situation.
