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 Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fix security bugs: CVE-2009-1895 CVE-2009-2406 CVE-2009-2407 Add -fno- delete-null-pointer-checks gcc compile flag to protect against issues similar to CVE-2009-1897. Fix virtio_blk driver bug (reported against Fedora 10.) iwl3945 wireless driver rfkill fixes. Fix DPMS on some nVidia adapters when using the nouveau driver.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected kernel package.
