New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for wpa_supplicant fixes the following issues :
- Several vulnerabilities in standard conforming implementations of the WPA2 protocol have been discovered and published under the code name KRACK. This update remedies those issues in a backwards compatible manner, i.e. the updated wpa_supplicant can interface properly with both vulnerable and patched implementations of WPA2, but an attacker won't be able to exploit the KRACK weaknesses in those connections anymore even if the other party is still vulnerable.
