Has anyone experienced backup issues after scanning the network with Nessus Home?
Unfortunately, I suspect the vast majority of people aren’t running vulnerability tests on their home networks so you may not find any peers to help answer this one.
It sounds like you might have had some backup problems yourself, though - what sorts of issues were you having and where they with local or cloud destinations?
What happened was, the duplicati service hung. On three machines: two Linux and a Win7. The UI was non-responsive and the machines had to be rebooted.
I’m wondering whether --webservice-interface=any was set? The default is to listen only on the same computer, which would require Nessus to hang Duplicati indirectly somehow. Having too-open access to Duplicati is a risk.
It might also be interesting what ports Nessus scanned. It’s configurable but nessus-services file gives defaults, though I see some complaints about inability to get them, and I don’t have Nessus here to check it out myself…
The web interface is open because I manage all three computers’ backups from one of them.
Thanks for the details. I’m running one Duplicati instance with
--webservice-interface=any so I went ahead and installed Nessus and tried to register it as an “Offline” Scanner Type but can’t figure out how the challenge code / activation code thing is supposed to work.
