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 device can be accessed with default credentials via FTP.


It is possible to log into the remote Alcatel OmniSwitch by providing the default credentials via FTP. A remote attacker could exploit this to gain administrative control of the remote device.


Change the default password or block access to the port.
