Hi cfi. I have installed Kali Linux 2021.1 with GVM 21.4.0 via repositories and guess what…I get the same error after run the scan
Jun 22 11:35:34 gvm ospd-openvas: (process:2896): GLib-WARNING (recursed) **: Invalid UTF-8 passed to g_io_channel_write_chars().
After I downloaded all the feeds and configured de import owner, I did the next few steps:
1-Enter the GSA
