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.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Gaia OS which is affected by an issue where low privileged users authenticated to the Gaia clish shell may execute arbitrary code as admin / root.
