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 a security update.


Update to 83.0.4103.116. Fixes CVE-2020-6509.


Black Lives Matter. Saying this does not mean that other lives do not matter. It should not be controversial to say this. If I say Chromium updates matter, it does not mean that other Fedora packages do not matter, it means that a Chromium update is needed to fix this giant pile of severe security vulnerabilities, here, today, now :

CVE-2020-6463 CVE-2020-6465 CVE-2020-6466 CVE-2020-6467 CVE-2020-6468 CVE-2020-6469 CVE-2020-6470 CVE-2020-6471 CVE-2020-6472 CVE-2020-6473 CVE-2020-6474 CVE-2020-6475 CVE-2020-6476 CVE-2020-6478 CVE-2020-6479 CVE-2020-6480 CVE-2020-6481 CVE-2020-6482 CVE-2020-6483 CVE-2020-6484 CVE-2020-6485 CVE-2020-6486 CVE-2020-6487 CVE-2020-6488 CVE-2020-6489 CVE-2020-6490 CVE-2020-6491 CVE-2020-6505 CVE-2020-6506 CVE-2020-6507

In making that analogy, I do not intend to trivialize BLM. In no way do I mean to compare the lives of people to a silly web browser update. People are infinitely important than software. But since I'm here to push this software update out, I am also choosing to say clearly and unambiguously that Black Lives Matter.

Open Source proves that many voices, many contributions, together can change the world. It depends on it. This is my voice.

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


Update the affected chromium package.
