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 database server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


You are running a version of MySQL 4.1.x, which is older than version 4.1.5.

There is a flaw in the remote version of this software that could allow an attacker to crash the affected service, thus denying access to legitimate users.


Upgrade to MySQL 4.1.5 or later, as this reportedly fixes the issue.
