Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 455798
replace nessus with openvas in fedora
Last modified: 2008-07-17 17:08:34 EDT
Description of problem:
nessus plugins are no longer offered for free. OpenVAS is a fork of nessus 2.x
that is under active development and looks to be a good alternative to nessus.
Nessus plugins have never been part of fedora because of the license situation.
If you think OpenVAS should be part of fedora think about becoming a package
maintiner for it. See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers
