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 Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


- Update to [BIND 9.11.10](https://downloads.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.11.10/REL EASE-NOTES-bind-9.11.10.html)

- Updates [dnsperf](https://github.com/DNS-OARC/dnsperf/blob/v2.3.


- New [minor BIND release](https://downloads.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.11.8/RELE ASE-NOTES-bind-9.11.8.html), fixing also security bug.

- dnsperf update with TCP support


Fixes occasional releases of obtained IP address. Detects jumps in time backward and refreshes address lease if time went back.
