Re: Pwn Plug and Nessus

I like running PVS when I can, if not I will run tcpdump. It's good to have a packet log if you are doing anything 
deep. Not just from a CYA standpoint but also a "wow I suddenly have a password file and I don't know what I did to get 
it" log. I cannot count the number of times an app assessment hit serious pay dirt just messing around with wget and it 
took hours for me to notice let alone reproduce. PVS would have flagged a passed file download.

I've also gotten requests to run the Passive Vulnerability Scanner during
pen tests (or more exactly, before the pen test) from a variety of folks
who do that sort of thing for a living. 

Since it is a sniffer, if you can get it deployed ahead of time, you can get
a great deal of intelligence without impacting anyone and have a very
good sense of your targets and vulns before you start exploiting anything.

irongeek's youtube channel. I think it was his pass the hash like a rockstar talk.

Does anyone have experience remotely running Nessus with something like the Pwn Plug?

I need something small that will reverse SSH back and allow me to remotely launch Nessus scans. I have heard of 
people using the Pwn Plug, but I'm curious as to the performance and accuracy of the scans.
