Subject Re: [users@httpd] Nessus hole report: MS/DOS device names

Within Nessus, you have the options to choose the tests you want to run.
It's a bit of work, however, configuring (choosing those tests dealing
with *your* os / webserver / database etc.) and then saving them for
future usage is worth while and avoids such garbage-messages.

Coming to your specific question:

I figure that the test-modules from Nessus do expect a certain answer
from the web-server / the os. If that answer is not given, the
test-module "assumes" the server / os being crashed.


what's puzzlin' you, is the nature of my game
