Nikto Reviews

nikto doesn't come with great updates

about Nikto and OpenVAS, Nessus · Dec 2013 ·

Nikto is one alternative to Nessus but both are not satisfying.
While Nessus just allows you to scan you own local area network without buying a terribly expensive license, nikto fails to stay up to date.
Today the latest changelog for me was 12 months old and that doesn't seem right when it comes to security.
After testing so many of these tools that just make use of NMAP and a source for CVEs I found openVAS to be the best choice.
