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 PDF file viewer on the remote Windows host is affected by several vulnerabilities.


The version of Adobe Reader installed on the remote host is earlier than 7.0.9 / 8.0 and is, therefore, reportedly affected by several security issues, including one that can lead to arbitrary code execution when processing a malicious PDF file.


Upgrade to Adobe Reader 6.0.6 / 7.0.9 / 8.0 or later.
