New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of ArubaOS-Switch installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the Treck IP stack implementation. The vulnerabilities are collectively known as Ripple20, and can result in remote code execution, denial of service (DoS), and information disclosure by remote, unauthenticated attackers.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to the ArubaOS-Switch version mentioned in the vendor advisory.
