Nessus 6.12.0 Release Notes - 2019-03-21

New Features

  • Double the supported size of the Nessus Plugins Database - The Nessus Engine was updated to support the handling of compiled plugin DBs that exceed 2 GB in size. This prevents newer versions of the Nessus plugins that exceed the 2 GB size from resulting in a failure that would leave the scanner inoperable.

Bug Fixes

  • Updated openSSL patch level 1.0.2r to ensure latest security fixes are available

  • After you upgrade Nessus, downgrading to a prior version of Nessus is not supported. Please back up your system first.
