Exported Results

Once a scan is finished running, Nessus scan results can be exported.

Using the Export button, you can export the scan’s results in one of four formats:

  • Nessus (.nessus)
  • PDF
  • HTML
  • CSV
  • Nessus DB (.db)

Nessus DB format is an encrypted, proprietary format, which exports all scan data. A password must be created, and then used when importing the .nessus file type.

Note: If the Nessus server time zone is changed after Nessus is installed and running, the time displayed on HTML and PDF reports will show the accurate time of day for the (new) changed time zone, but the time zone label will reflect the previous label of the previous time zone. To resolve this issue, restart the Nessus service.
