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.


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Mozilla Thunderbird was updated to 52.4.0 (boo#1060445)

- new behavior was introduced for replies to mailing list posts: 'When replying to a mailing list, reply will be sent to address in From header ignoring Reply-to header'. A new preference mail.override_list_reply_to allows to restore the previous behavior.

- IMAP UIDs > 0x7FFFFFFF now handled properly Security fixes from Gecko 52.4esr

- CVE-2017-7793 (bmo#1371889) Use-after-free with Fetch API

- CVE-2017-7819 (bmo#1380292) Use-after-free while resizing images in design mode

- CVE-2017-7824 (bmo#1398381) Buffer overflow when drawing and validating elements with ANGLE

- CVE-2017-7823 (bmo#1396320) CSP sandbox directive did not create a unique origin

- CVE-2017-7810 Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 56 and Firefox ESR 52.4

- Add alsa-devel BuildRequires: we care for ALSA support to be built and thus need to ensure we get the dependencies in place. In the past, alsa-devel was pulled in by accident: we buildrequire libgnome-devel.
This required esound-devel and that in turn pulled in alsa-devel for us. libgnome is being fixed to no longer require esound-devel.
