New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote service may be affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the installation of Quagga's BGP daemon listening on the remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability. The issue can be triggered by a specially crafted UPDATE message from an explicitly configured BGP peer.


Upgrade to version 0.98.7 / 0.99.7 or later.
