Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Thanks for bringing this up Athletica!

It’s a little bit sad, but for those who haven’t read the article, a goodly part of this is due to corporations who are using the Nessus engine without acknowledging (and sometimes even denying or renaming it) to make money without a dime to the original developers.

This makes it a little tougher for guys like me who run small shops – I think I’ve given them $30 or $40 if memory serves – but the sad part is that that’s a lot more than people who’ve made thousands of dollars.

    Please refer to the actual vendor (Nessus) announcement at http://www.nessus.org/plugins/index.php?view=feed for details. It's still free-ish. Cheers, Chris
