Re: Nessus to Excel

Hi Matthew,

Try to run this command on a Linux box, where test.nbe is your Nessus Report, and it will generate a file nessus-out.csv which you can open with Excel.

$ grep test.nbe|cut -d"|" -f3,4,5,6|sort -k1|sed s/\|/,/g|perl -e 'while (<>) { print $_ if (/(.*\,){3}/)}' > nessus-out.csv

You can delete the cut command in order to get the complete report.

Hope it helps.

Subject: Nessus to Excel


I'm not a database guy and not good with XML. Does anyone know a good way to transfer Nessus documents to Excel output? I need it to compare the output from an outside company's scan (which is in Excel) in a quick fashion. I do have a linux box and a windows box at my disposal. Any ideas?
