After compiling and installing openvas from source I run greenbone-nvt-sync and get these messages:
tar: xtel_detect.nasl: Cannot open: Permission denied
tar: xtelw_detect.nasl: Cannot open: Permission denied
tar: yahoo_msg_running.nasl: Cannot open: Permission denied
But when I run w/ sudo, I get this message:
/usr/local/bin/greenbone-nvt-sync must not be executed as privileged user root
Unlike the actual scanner the sync routine does not need privileges.
Accidental execution as root would prevent later overwriting of
files with a non-privileged user.
How do I sync NVTs?
