Ron Gula and Renaud Deraison from Tenable Network Security
about a licensing change for Nessus, a vulnerability scanner.
"Nessus -- once billed as "the open-source vulnerability scanner" -- is changing its ways as of the 3.0 release, which is expected shortly. According to a recent post on the Nessus Announcements mailing list "Nessus 3 will be available free of charge, including on the Windows platform, but will not be released under the GPL." On its Web site, Nessus now just bills itself as "the network vulnerability scanner."
