Re: Merging .NBE

Hi Joshua,
The NBE file format is quite simple -- its just pipe delimited text.

Off the top of my head, you could do this -- put all the NBE's in one
directory and then use something similar to:

----- Start here ------


for i in `ls *.nbe`
cat $i >> full-scan-results.nbe

nessus -i full-scan-results.nbe -o full-scan-results.html

----- End here ------

As a bonus, the last line will take your nbe results and convert directly
to HTML, since you'll probably want to open your results in something
other than the nessus client each time.

Hello list...........

The problem I'm having is that when I scan with nessus I tend to break it
up based on subnets or platform / server types so I have a lot of NBE's//

Anyone know how to combine several NBE files into one file?
