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 SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update to ClamAV version 0.90 fixes various bugs :

- A filedescriptor leak in the handling of CAB files can lead to a denial of service attack against the clamd scanner daemon caused by remote attackers.

- A directory traversal in handling of MIME E-Mail headers could be used by remote attackers to overwrite local files owned by the user under which clamd is running.


Apply ZYPP patch number 2631.
