How can I enable web application scanning in OpenVas?

I tried to evaluate the NVT with OpenVas and I can definitely say they are great. Now, I have seen an option that shows "Enable generic web application scanning." But I didn't find an option to enable it.

Any help with this?

ubuntu – the metasploit openvas add-in does not connect to OpenVAS9-Manager

In the File /etc/init.d/openvas-manager, which manages the service, you will see that

  • includes a file with parameters
  • and then use the variables in that file as arguments.
# Read configuration variable file if it is present
[ -r /etc/default/$DESC ] && . /etc/default/$DESC

# Update DAEMON_ARGS with optional settings from /etc/default
[ -n "$LISTEN_ADDRESS" ] && DAEMON_ARGS="$DAEMON_ARGS --listen=$LISTEN_ADDRESS"
[ -n "$PORT_NUMBER" ] && DAEMON_ARGS="$DAEMON_ARGS --port=$PORT_NUMBER"

So, to start the service with active listening ports, you should simply take a look at /etc/defaults/openvas-manager

There you can simply uncomment the lines for "LISTEN_ADDRESS" and "PORT_NUMBER" and set the values ​​according to your wishes.

# Defaults for OpenVAS Manager initscript
# sourced by /etc/init.d/openvas-manager
# installed at /etc/default/openvas-manager by the maintainer scripts

# For more information see `man openvasmd`

# To set listening address:
# 
LISTEN_ADDRESS="127.0.0.1"

# To set listening port number:
#
PORT_NUMBER=9390

Then, simply restart the service.

How do I perform a passive scan with OpenVas? [on hold]

Can someone help me use OpenVas as a purely passive vulnerability analysis tool?

hosting – Openvas vulnerability scanner

I am using the Openvas vulnerability scanner in my pentesting. I waited a few minutes for the exploration to begin. But, when it starts, it shows "requested" in the status bar and, after an update, shows that the scan was performed and that the host is considered dead. However, if I do the same scan of the site with Owasp ZAP, then it shows multiple vulnerabilities. Can anyone tell me what this is and how can I solve it?

web application – faraday ide no matter the scan of openvas

I'm trying to add an xml results file from openvas in Faraday, but when I import it, nothing happens. Could anyone help me, please?

PS: my file is in the downloads folder and when I upload it, Faraday says that:

And when I launch Python-Faraday, this is what happens.
