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 Windows host has a browser plug-in that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The version of the LuraWave JP2 Browser Plug-In installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than and thus reportedly contains a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted HTML document, he can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.


Upgrade to version or later.
