I have been working on a bit of code in my free time as Nessus seems to be moving away from the .nbe format and honestly the .nessus format has a lot more information.
I still need to move this data into a format that is more friendly with the command-line from time to time and also I need the data in a format acceptable for reports. This bit of java will take the V2 .nessus files and convert them to a html table or xls if you so desire as Excel supports html tables.
You need to pass this the .nessus file at the command-line
java XMLTable Input.nessus > output.[html/xls]
and it should churn out the table available for sorting and calculations. I have included the columns useful to me thus far but the java is simple enough to adjust for more or less columns.
I am working on another project to produce NIST style tables and statistics when I get some more free time. Also I would really like to clean up this code.
I wanted to get this out the door as I have some work that needs this data next week and a few people waiting to use it.
I seem to always be coding under a dire need / deadline .... thus its not pretty.
If this is useful to you as always great use it abuse it drop me a copy.
