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 FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


* ``bleach.clean`` behavior parsing embedded MathML and SVG content with RCDATA tags did not match browser behavior and could result in a mutation XSS.

Calls to ``bleach.clean`` with ``strip=False`` and ``math`` or ``svg`` tags and one or more of the RCDATA tags ``script``, ``noscript``, ``style``, ``noframes``, ``iframe``, ``noembed``, or ``xmp`` in the allowed tags whitelist were vulnerable to a mutation XSS.

* ``bleach.clean`` behavior parsing ``noscript`` tags did not match browser behavior.

Calls to ``bleach.clean`` allowing ``noscript`` and one or more of the raw text tags (``title``, ``textarea``, ``script``, ``style``, ``noembed``, ``noframes``, ``iframe``, and ``xmp``) were vulnerable to a mutation XSS.


Update the affected packages.
