"There exists some vulnerabilities in NASL scripting engine.
To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to have a valid Nessus
account as well as the ability to upload arbitrary Nessus plugins in the
Nessus server (this option is disabled by default) or he/she would need to
trick a user somehow into running a specially crafted nasl script."
