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.

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Daniel Stone of X.Org reports :

During the analysis of results from the Coverity code review of X.Org, we discovered a flaw in the server that allows local users to execute arbitrary code with root privileges, or cause a denial of service by overwriting files on the system, again with root privileges.

Solution

Update the affected package.
