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 Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

- New stable release, API and ABI compatible with previous 1.2.x versions

- Fixes crashes with newer libpng (>= 1.4)

- The patches to fix the following CVEs are included with help from Huzaifa Sidhpurwala <huzaifas at redhat.com> from the Red Hat security team

CVE-2010-4198 CVE-2010-4197 CVE-2010-4204 CVE-2010-4206 CVE-2010-1791 CVE-2010-3812 CVE-2010-3813 CVE-2010-4577

Solution
