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 AIX host is missing a security patch.

Description IBM AIX could allow a non-privileged local user to exploit a vulnerability in the trace facility to expose sensitive information or cause a denial of service.
