Nmap Vulners NSE
PlexTrac supports importing XML Vulners NSE files from Nmap. Nmap, short for "Network Mapper," is an open-source network scanning tool that allows network administrators and security professionals to discover devices on a network, identify open ports and services, gather information about those services, perform OS fingerprinting, and automate tasks using custom scripts.
Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) enables users to write and execute custom scripts to perform specific tasks during network scanning. NSE scripts are classified into predefined categories. Nmap vulners files use a database to detect potential vulnerabilities in services and systems found during a network scan.
It's important to note that vulners scripts are distinct from vulscan and vuln scripts. The main difference is the vulnerability database used.
