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 FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Secunia reports :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in ClamAV, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and compromise a vulnerable system.

An unspecified integer overflow error exists in the PE header parser in 'libclamav/pe.c'. Successful exploitation requires that the ArchiveMaxFileSize option is disabled.

Some format string errors in the logging handling in 'shared/output.c' may be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

An out-of-bounds memory access error in the 'cli_bitset_test()' function in 'ibclamav/others.c' may be exploited to cause a crash.


Update the affected packages.
