Report outdated / end-of-life Scan Engine / Environment (local)

Hello 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Report outdated / end-of-life Scan Engine / Environment (local)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

Please contact the Kali Team to update the packaging, there is nothing WE can do here. If you are going with unsupported version they need to provide help to their users.

We only support only GCE and this version is actual and supported by this community.

Thank you.

I’m getting the same messages on both a Debian VM that only has OpenVas installed as well as a ParretOS Security Edition. I have ran updated them all to the latest using apt and am still getting this when I run scans. Any thoughts?


I have already posted to KALI LINUX and OpenVAS community looking for answer.
We’ll see.
Have a nice day.

This scan result always means you are using an outdated version of our software which will likely contain issues already fixed in newer versions and the community feed may not be compatible anymore with this version. Greenbone is not in charge for your version of our software. Therefore you should contact the provider of your packages (most likely your distribution) and create a request for updated packages. How this request should be made really depends on the provider of the packages. If you don’t know how to do that you are always welcome to use our Greenbone Community Edition Virtual Machine.
