Summary0006405: Report outdated / end-of-life Scan Engine / Environment (local)
DescriptionHello everyone.

After my last update of KALI LINUX the scanning with OPENVAS (fully updated also) came up with the following scan result:

Report outdated / end-of-life Scan Engine / Environment (local)
Installed GVM Libraries (gvm-libs) version: 9.0.3
Latest available GVM Libraries (gvm-libs) version: 10.0.1

Solution type: VendorFix

Update to the latest available stable release for your scan environment. Please check the references for more information. If you're using packages provided by your Linux distribution please contact the maintainer of the used distribution / repository and request updated packages.

Of course the other scanning results were extremely poor -actually far less than the usual of the same IP.

Is it something I can do to fix this, or should I wait for a vendorfix?

Thank you in advance,

P. Leontios

Is there an estimate on when KALI is about to update its distribution to include the last version of the openvas scanner?

Probably "when it's done".

I can see that, but is it going to be done within a week's, a month's, 6 months', or a year's period?
Is there a clue about it?

Please don't open duplicate bugs and don't ask the same question everyday on two different tickets.

OpenVAS is packaged in the pkg-security team in Debian (we are involved in that team). Some OpenVAS components changed a lot and are hard to package properly. We don't have any ETA currently. Please use 0005797 to continue this conversation if required.
