Hi all

Any ideas guys?

The Nessus HTML gives you a 'Nessus ID'[1] which is the plugin # for Nessus. Check out http://cgi.nessus.org/plugins/dump.php3?id=XXXX afterwards (I believe the HTML report has links to that)

You can also use the .nbe report use it to generate the HTML (or generate both at the same time) and then parse the information from the nbe as needed:

results|XXXXXX|XXXXX|www (80/tcp)|10330|Security Note|A web server is running on this port\n

The 10330 is the find services plugin.

This question should have been directed to the nessus-users mailing list better.
