Fedora 28 : chromium (2018-aafdbb5554)

high Nessus Plugin ID 120695

Language:

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 Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Update to Chromium 65. For EPEL7, it has been a long time since a successful build has been possible, so this will fix a LOT of CVEs.
