Re: Nessus, Harmful?

As long as I have been using Nessus (for about 7 years) I never noticed such problems. The truth is that Nessus can 
cause certain law related problems if used in inappropriate manner (certain in depth scans can trigger IDS/IPS alerts 
which may lead to prosecution -- you may be taken as a intruder). If you want to do it legally do not bother about any 
unintentional DoS.
