The correct answer(s) are listed at the very bottom of the page to give you a chance to think about it first.
Nessus, from Tenable Security, can perform sophisticated vulnerability scans. Nessus can identify unencrypted, sensitive data, such as credit card numbers, that are saved on your network. The program can run on your network or run on off-site servers continuously maintained and updated by the developer. Because of its comprehensive nature and its use for revealing security flaws that must be addressed, Nessus and utilities like it are known as penetration testing tools. Another popular penetration testing tool called Metasploit, combines known scanning techniques and exploits to explore potentially new mixtures of exploits. Perl, although not a penetration tool in and by itself, is a scripting language that give you the flexibility to produce penetration tools for specific files/file types quickly and easily.
