Is this just a run of nessus or something fancier?

I think offering to "audit your server security" and then not either telling us what the audit entails or what software you'll be using doesn't make me want to rush to take up your kind offer

I was ironically looking at nessus today to possibly run this on our work network periodically via cron to test the security of all the (heterogenous) machines we have attached (both inside and outside the hardware firewalls we have in place).

The problem is that you can test your company's network security yourself via nessus, but no-one you're trying to impress (e.g. for contract bids) will believe you and you end up having pay thousands to a third-party security testing company, who probably either just run nessus and produce a pretty report or possibly run an inferior tool to nessus.

Still, nessus is handy even then - you run it, sort out any problems, run it again, get a clean bill of health from nessus and *then* bring in the expensive external testers - they should find a pretty clean system and give you a good security rating and, just as important, they'll probably only need one run (cos you probably pay per test run) to give you that good rating.

Oh, why isn't nessus shipped with Fedora Core 2? It's a very useful security tool and is GPL'ed. I can't understand its omission at all...

hand scanning, port scanning and more, some home made scanning application that mimic retina. After we do this scanning we will send you teh report of the scanning, it will scan your daemon version to match with certain vunerabilities lists and list them based on priority on the flaw.

I agree, tell us exactly what you are going to do, then maybe... otherwise I'll wait for the blackhats.

That's not specific. Idno. I love the forums and what you guys have done with the place, but still tentative to say "scan me" and report back. Good thought, I hope people take you up on it as it would probably do alot of good. As for me, I'll stick with nessus and scan myself.

at least people are paranoid. and not just blindly inviting people to find vulnerablities in their servers. with users like this, linux may remain as secure as it is even after 20% market share. Keep up the paranoia fedoraforum and remember your tin foil hats.
