Notes about the NASL file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The NASL file type is primarily associated with 'Nessus Attack Scripting Language' by Tenable Network Security. NASL is a scripting language designed for the Nessus security scanner. Its aim is to allow anyone to write a test for a given security hole in a few minutes, to allow people to share their tests without having to worry about their operating system, and to guarantee everyone that a NASL script can not do anything nasty except performing a given security test against a given target.
