Hi Friends, its common that we forget things. I have forgotten my nessus password so many times. Today we will see how to reset nessus password in Kali linux in case you have forgotten it. Open a terminal, and type the command “cd /opt/nessus/sbin” to navigate to the sbin directory. Here type “ls” to see the contents of this directory as shown below.
Next type command “./nessuscli lsuser ” to see all the nessus users present. Here, we have only one. Ok, let’s reset the password for user root. Type command ” ./nessuscli chpasswd root “. The system will prompt you to enter the new password. Enter the password two times as shown below. You have successfully changed the nessus password. Now logon with the new password.
