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 host has ColdFusion RDS enabled.


Remote Development Services (RDS) is enabled on the remote ColdFusion server. RDS allows developers to use IDEs such as Dreamweaver to manage applications. It is recommended that RDS be disabled for production servers and that it be configured to require authentication on development servers.
