Unix Operating System on Extended Support

info Nessus Plugin ID 66293


The remote host is running an operating system that is on extended support.


According to its version, the remote host uses a Unix or Unix-like operating system that has transitioned to an extended portion in its support life cycle. Continued access to new security updates requires payment of an additional fee and / or configuration changes to the package management tool. Without that, the host likely will be missing security updates.


Ensure that the host subscribes to the vendor's extended support plan and continues to receive security updates.
