Hello, The OpenVAS developers are happy to announce the fifth maintenance release of the openvas-scanner 3.2 module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System release 4 (OpenVAS-4).
This release addresses a security issue related to the optional use of the external tool "ovaldi" by making file ownership and location more secure. This fixes the issue described in OSVDB-75177. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release: Michael Wiegand. Main changes compared to 3.2.4: * The optional use of the external tool "ovaldi" has been made more secure. The source tarball for this release along with checksums and signatures is available for download from the OpenVAS website at http://www.openvas.org/. Binary packages for major GNU/Linux distributions by third parties are expected in the following weeks.
