[Nikto-discuss] How to disable prompt to send database update?

Hi all,

We have an automated wrapper script to run Nikto scan. It has been running
fine most scenarios. But recently Nikto scan run into a new web server which
prompt user to select whether to send information update or not. As our
Nikto scan is run in non-interact fashion, so it won¹t take any key stroke.
Now our script will hang forever.

Would like to know if there is any Nikto config where it can disable ³prompt
to send info update².  Or is there a CLI option to set ³No² by default. In
other hand, may a database update resolve this issue?



   Portions of the server's ident string (Apache/2.2.3) are not in

   the Nikto database or is newer than the known string. Would you like

   to submit this information (*no server specific data*) to CIRT.net

   for a Nikto update (or you may email to sullo at cirt.net) (y/n)?
