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 host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Gaia OS which is affected by a heap buffer overflow vulnerability in glibc which could potentially allow an attacker execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application.

Solution

Update to an unaffected version or apply vendor-supplied hotfix.
