In case you have missed the announcement, Tenable security has made the decision of commercializing the popular Nessus security scanner within the next month.
As a result, a project group has been formed to release a GPL fork of the Nessus security scanner in the future. This product will probably undergo a name change to prevent problems with support between the commercial scanner and the new GPL fork. In the meantime, it is located at http://www.gnessus.org/doku.php .
Additionally, Handler Kevin Liston noted that another GPL nessus project is located at http://porz-wahn.berlios.de/homepage/about.php .
Two more GPL projects to mention:
Segusius (located at http://sourceforge.net/projects/segusius )
GPL Nesus Checks (located at http://sourceforge.net/projects/gplnessuschecks )
(Thanks Schneelocke for reporting these)
