critical Nessus Plugin ID 177842


An instance of Tenable NNM installed on the remote system is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version, the Nessus Network Monitor running on the remote host is prior to 6.2.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the TNS-2023-23 advisory. Several of the third-party components were found to contain vulnerabilities, and updated versions have been made available by the providers.
