I'm currently scanning a network using OpenVAS / Greenbone Security Assistant installed on Kali Linux.
During the scan, multiple targets have crashed. This is obviously something I want to investigate. As I'm running the "Full and fast" scan profile, 65238 NVTs are being run against each host. Unfortunately, OpenVAS does not (and probably cannot) realize, if a target has crashed.
- How can I find out, or at least narrow down, which NVT caused the crash? Are there options other than binary search?
- Does OpenVAS run the NVTs in consecutive order or is the order randomized?
- OpenVAS does not seem to log, which NVT was run at which time, so I cannot correlate the time (which would only give me a rough time-window, anyways). Can I activate this somehow?
