Hi David,

Thanks for the reply, it was version 2.1.0 and I have melted the box. 

I will let you know if I can get Nikto on a machine again shortly to
test it.

That's really not good - which version are you using? According to the
latest 2.1.0, that line is:

least see the headers it produces for a GET /)
