Nessus app error


Morning all,

since replacing the certs on our Nessus box with self signed ones, we're getting a weird error. Initially the issue was down to not having added the chain into the cacerts.txt file but, having fixed that, we're now getting another error...

TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable

It's been broken for a while, so it's not certain that this is down to the change in the certs. The app has updated at least once in the time period.
