Summary0005369: nikto saves output files in /var/lib/nikto
DescriptionThe wrapper script for Nikto does a cd into /var/lib/nikto before executing the script. This has the effect of making files created with the -output option ending up in that same directory, rather than the current dir.

The /usr/bin/nikto script should have these contents instead:


exec /var/lib/nikto/ "$@"

This is the same issue as reported against Arch linux at
Steps To Reproducenikto -output host.xml -host
