critical Nessus Plugin ID 133448
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 SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for python36 to version 3.6.10 fixes the following issues :

CVE-2017-18207: Fixed a denial of service in Wave_read._read_fmt_chunk() (bsc#1083507).

CVE-2019-15903: Fixed a heap-based buffer over-read in libexpat (bsc#1149429).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
