Hello, i would appreciate any help on this topic.
Running authenticated scan against Windows machine (Server 2012), Authentication is successful, openvas scanner can find a lot of relevant information , but there is a problem that 0 tests from family “Windows: Microsoft Bulletins” run. Checked openvassd.messages, i can see only that they were loaded when i started openvas and that’s it , nothing else , no information like (Not starting … coz mandatory key is missing).
I moved around 30 scripts from Microsoft bulletins to family “General” (ones that i was sure has to trigger), and in like 10 minutes after the start of the scan they all were found.
I tried and created new family , ex. “Win Patches Microsoft” and moved those 30 scripts in that category, and they were NOT detected again.
Any ideas what is going on and why there is none information about attempt to even run them in openvassd.messages or how this can be fixed ?
