39 SCADA Vulnerability Plugins in Nessus

Doing a simple search on Tenable security website to check on the newly released Nessus4 I found that it “Still” contains the good old 39 plugins posted under the SCADA family with no recent additions since late 2008. Most notably on the list are the Areva, Modicon, DP3 and Citec plugins.

I’m personally against publishing any of the new and more complex SCADA vulnerabilities as part of such a widely used commercial, point and click tool

why would a tool available for public download contain SCADA vulnerabilities. remember who uses SCADA systems!! (Energy, Water, Health, Transportation…etc ), what is the need to know basis here.
