New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

- miniserver: fix binding to ipv6 link-local addresses

- Fix out-of-bound access in create_url_list() (CVE-2016-8863)

- If the error or info log files can not be created, use stderr and stdout instead.
