Question 7

How can a Nessus report be forwarded to a recipient in a secure way?

Sending a report to an email address is only used in conjunction with a Detached Scan. There's no option in Nessus for encrypting the email, so it's always sent as plain text. The option to send the report as an email has been depreceated and completely removed from version 2.3.x [i31]. In our opinion, you only remove such a conveinient feature if it's a security risk, so it's our assumtion that this is the case.
