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.


Remote open ports can be enumerated via WMI.


Using the WMI interface, Nessus was able to run 'netstat' on the remote host to enumerate the open ports.
