Nessus Network Monitor < 6.2.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities (TNS-2022-28)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 170688


A vulnerability scanner installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Nessus Network Monitor (NNM) installed on the remote host is prior to 6.2.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in third-party software. Out of caution and in line with best practice, Tenable has opted to upgrade these components to address the potential impact of the issues.
Nessus Network Monitor 6.2.0 updates moment.js to version 2.29.4 and handlebars to version 4.7.7 to address the identified vulnerabilities.

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


Upgrade to Nessus Network Monitor version 6.2.0 or later.
