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.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the dissectors/parsers for ZigBee, GSM RLC/MAC, WaveAgent, ptvcursor, OpenFlow, WCCP and in internal functions which could result in denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the wireshark packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u3.
