About The Project

Nessusview is a pentesters dream when dealing with .nessus files. Simply provide the .nessus file to be parsed, and output name. A nice, professional, readable parsed .html format will be available for you!

Also isn't limited to 2500 hosts like the enterprise interface... (NO SHADE)

Now including:

  • .html output in a professional format
  • hosts tab to view afflictions per host
  • plugins tab to view afflicted hosts per vulnerability

Getting Started


Clone the repo

 git clone
 cd nessusview

Copy / Ensure .nessus file to be parsed is accesible, preferably located within this applications root directory. It shall be referred to as clientfile

Parse .nessus

    python3 clientfile outputfilename


    python3 client_external.nessus /work/path/client/client_external_report

NOTE: .html is added automatically so no need to add above.


  • Exception Handling
  • Input validation, formatting, and cleanup
  • Facelift (I'm clearly a noob, help!)
  • Written to database for persistence. (Please help!!!!!)
