medium Nessus Plugin ID 48370


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 FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The official ruby site reports :

WEBrick have had a cross-site scripting vulnerability that allows an attacker to inject arbitrary script or HTML via a crafted URI. This does not affect user agents that strictly implement HTTP/1.1, however, some user agents do not.


Update the affected packages.
