Windows authenticated scan

I have openvas installed on my Raspberry Pi 4 using apt get and I’m not sure how to do an authenticated scan on my Windows 10 PC to check for installed software vulnerabilities. I created a local account on the Windows machine, added those credentials to openvas and specified to use those credentials in the task with the PC’s IP but I’m not seeing any software vulnerabilities. I only see this result below. What do I need to do to show outdated versions with vulnerabilities of chrome browser, adobe, etc ?

It was not possible to connect to the PIPE\winreg on the remote host. If you intend to use the Scanner to perform registry-based checks, the registry checks will not work because the ‘Remote Registry’ service is not running or has been disabled on the remote host.

Please either:

  • configure the ‘Startup Type’ of the ‘Remote Registry’ service on the target host to ‘Automatic’.
  • configure the NVT ‘Windows Services Start’ (OID: to start this service automatically.

It seems the used packages are not build/linked against the openvas-smb module which is required for authenticated Windows scans.

Please contact the maintainer of the uses packages to get the openvas-smb module packaged. As an alternative you could also build GVM from the source code.

Is there no way to add the openvas-smb module after installing from precompiled package?

No this needs to be integrated during compile time. Otherwise the hooks and code integration is missing. Please get back to your packet provider we can´t help you here or compile it self from the source.

Hi. Tell please, where i can find this type of logs? I checked ospd-scanner.log, openvas.log, gvmd.log, gsad.log but there is nothing like that.

This is the output of the Windows SMB/LSC Authenticated Scan Info Consolidation VT described here:

Thanks a lot
