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

- Update to Ruby 2.3.4.

- Fix SMTP command injection via CRLF sequences in RCPT TO or MAIL FROM commands in Net::SMTP (CVE-2015-9096).
