Hey Nessus, do you do sudo?

We all know and love Nessus. Well today, Tenable made it even better. Nessus now fully supports su and sudo for audit and patch compliance checks. This is very cool.

Next, in response to the ssh key bruhaha this week, there are now a couple of plugins that will check for weak keys in SSH and SSL protected webservers.

Caveat: It appears that you need to be Direct Feed/Professional subscriber to use these features.
