Using BackTrack4 I have trouble updating:
+ ERROR (404): Unable to get www.cirt.net/nikto/UPDATES/2.10/versions.txt
(i do have a web connection)
When I look at the URL: www.cirt.net/nikto/UPDATES/2.10/versions.txt I notice that it is misspelled.
It should be www.cirt.net/nikto/UPDATES/2.1.0/versions.txt
So just 2.1.0 instead of the 2.10. I cannot find a way to edit the update URL.
I tried disabling DNS to force nikto to use ip for updates (I corrected the ip in /pentest/scanners/nikto/nikto.conf)
I get the same error:
+ ERROR (404): Unable to get 126.96.36.199/nikto/UPDATES/2.10/versions.txt
Also the misspelled URL: 2.10/versions.txt
> Then I tried updating manually by downloading from www.cirt.net/nikto/UPDATES/2.1.0/ and placing it in the /pentest/scanners/nikto/plugins folder.
Now nikto would start a scan anymore.
