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 database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of MariaDB 5.5 running on the remote host is prior to 5.5.28. It is, therefore, potentially affected by vulnerabilities in the following components :

- GIS Extension
- Server
- Server Installation
- Server Optimizer
- yaSSL


Upgrade to MariaDB version 5.5.28 or later.
