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 FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Martin Prpic reports :

A double free flaw was found in the way JasPer's jasper_image_stop_load() function parsed certain JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash.

Feist Josselin reports :

A new use-after-free was found in Jasper JPEG-200. The use-after-free appears in the function mif_process_cmpt of the src/libjasper/mif/mif_cod.c file.


Update the affected package.
