I find it strange that nessus didn't even see an open port on 1421.
There is a commercial database security scanner out there.  We tested
it, but couldn't justify the cost.

There are a butt-load of Oracle plugins for nessus. More then 7 of them
are for remote shells.

Nessus is a dumb scanner, if it can't see the interface to an app, it
can't attack it.  Likewise, if the interface requires a special client
to login, it doesn't.

I did a very quick look at the list of Oracle plugins, and I don't see
any that check for default logins.

Hi to all.

Some day ago I was quite surprised to see that on a server that was d
scanned with nessus and with emaze scanner that revealed no relevant 
security hole, there was oracle installed and active with all the 
default oracle user/password activated (i.e. system/manager, 
scott/tiger, etc).

What VA tool can find default user on oracle? Is it possible to find 
that info with Nessus (perhaps I can't use it at its best)?

Best Regards,
                Massimo
PS
I usually activate all the check on nessus and emaze.
