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 host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

- Multiple flaws exist in the 'libvorbis' library could lead to remote code execution. (CVE-2009-2663)
