Notes about the NASL file extension:
To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened
" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?
" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps"
and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.
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.
