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 openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update fixes the problem where RPM misses to clear the SUID/SGID bit of old files during package updates. (CVE-2010-2059)

Also following bugfixes were merged from SLE11 :

- make 'rpmconfigcheck status' exit with 4 [bnc#592269]

- do not use glibc for passwd/group lookups when --root is used [bnc#536256]

- disable cpio md5 checking for repackaged rpms [bnc#572280]

- Add rpm- from upstream (bnc#552622)

- backport lazy statfs patch [fate#302038]

- define disttag as optional tag with macro just like disturl

- add popt-devel and rpm-devel to baselibs config (bnc#445037)

- brp-symlink: whitelist kde4 doc path (bnc#457908)

- find-supplements.ksyms: Module aliases may contain special characters that rpm does not allow in dependencies, such as commas. Encode those as %XX to avoid generating broken dependencies (bnc#456695).

- Don't convert to binary.


Update the affected popt packages.
