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 SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This apache2 update fixes the following security issues :

- log_cookie mod_log_config.c remote denial of service (CVE-2014-0098, bnc#869106)

- mod_dav denial of service (CVE-2013-6438, bnc#869105)

- mod_dav: segfault in merge request (CVE-2013-1896, bnc#829056)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
