I’m a long time openvas user, and just built my new GVM 22.4.1 from scratch using the instructions from the official docs.
While doing so, I noticed that the scan configs are incomplete, missing most vulnerability families and even misses the nasl port scanner, rendering the scan configs useless for me.
Of course my feeds are up-to-date on the GVM22 build, but all scans I am trying find zero results.
Thank you for your answer.
Although notus was installed properly and running and the notus files present on disk, a greenbone-feed-sync --type all and some coffee resolved the issue for me.
Sorry for the noise.
As this has come up elsewhere @bricks , could you please confirm something for me.
I can not find in the installation docs or in the “–help” for the greenbone-nvt-sync or the greenbone-feed-sync an option to sync data specific to notus. In fact, the “–type” option is not listed in the --help for the nvt-sync at all, though the script does run seeming to ignore the option.
To clarify the situation, there are currently three sync scripts:
greenbone-nvt-sync shipped with openvas-scanner to download nasl and notus files without a --type argument. It’s a shell script.
greenbone-feed-sync shipped with gvmd to download scap, cert and gvmd data (has a --type argument). It’s a shell script. There are also greenbone-scapdata-sync, greenbone-certdata-sync which just call greenbone-feed-sync with the desired --type argument.
greenbone-feed-sync a new separated Python script that replaces all the previous ones. It has a --type argument with a lot of options.
The first two mentioned shell based scripts are deprecated in favor of the latter one.
