Description Linear Systems Tech Svcs. 2016-07-28 19:32:52 UTC
After install, when trying to run nikto-2.1.5, it fails out with the following error:

"Undefined subroutine &LW2::init_ssl_engine called at /usr/bin/nikto line 66."

This might be related to bug 533900 and/or bug 521884.

I found a workaround posted at to comment out the offending line.

This disables SSL support, but allows nikto to run regular HTTP checks.

Please retry with nikto-2.1.6_p20180122
