Network devices running an unsupported operating system lack current security fixes required to mitigate the risks associated with recent vulnerabilities. Running a supported release also enables operations to maintain a stable and reliable network provided by improved quality of service and security features.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Upgrade the switch to a supported release.
