Password reset for Nessus (Windows)

Have you forgotten yours? Here is the solution:

  1. run CMD with local admin rights
  2. navigate to the Nessus folder (something like C:\Program Files\Tenable\Nessus)
  3. run nessus-chpasswd [username]


(Apparently you need to know your username before you proceed with the above…)
