Hello there,
I hope everyone is well. My install on my Kali box is failing constantly now after and Os update. I have removed and purged openvas and the re-installed but now it just hangs at login. I am an old noobie who is trying to learn basic pentest/audit skills so any help much appreciated. Cheers Kev
