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.


Runs dependency plugins.


This is a wrapper plugin for ensuring that detection scripts for custom software patching methodologies (outside of yum, dpkg, and similar package management systems) get run prior to the execution of localcheck plugins.

Add additional detection scripts to the script_dependencies attribute.
