Episode 29: Critical Vulnerabilities You WON’T Find Using Nessus

In this episode Brad and Spencer vulnerabilities that are not detected by vulnerability scanning tools such as Nessus and explored several methods that can be used to identify them. While vulnerability scanning is important and effective at identifying known vulnerabilities, they are not so good at detecting unknown or complex vulnerabilities. To address this gap, we discussed several complementary methods that can be used, such as penetration testing, red teaming, fuzzing, and source code review, to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that may not be apparent from a vulnerability scan. By incorporating these additional methods into a comprehensive security testing strategy, organizations can gain a better understanding of their security posture and take steps to address vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers.
