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.


At least one iSCSI target is configured not to use authentication.


One or more of the iSCSI (Internet Small Computer Systems Interface) targets on the remote host are configured not to use an authentication mechanism, potentially allowing unauthorized access to the targets.


Configure authentication on the target to restrict access to authorized initiators.
