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.

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

gnutls did not properly handle embedded '\0' characters in x509 certificates. Attackers using specially crafted certificates could exploit that to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks (CVE-2009-2730).

Solution

Update the affected gnutls packages.
