OpenVAS just announced the availability of its license-free scanner. The new release (2.0.0) comes with a lot of bugfixes and improvement.
The most interesting are:
- Support of OVAL
- OIDs support (prefix: 188.8.131.52.4.1.25623) to identify all the vulnerabilities checks.
The new support of OVAL (“Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language“) is a great plus for OpenVAS. There are already plenty of ready-to-use scripts. Check out the online repository.
All details on the official website.
