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 host is running a web server that may be leaking information.


The web server running on the remote host appears to be hiding its version or name, which is a good thing. However, using a specially crafted request, Nessus was able to discover the information.


No generic solution is known. Contact your vendor for a fix or a workaround.
