Need assistance with upgrading (gvm-libs) version: 9.0.3 to (gvm-libs) version:(gvm-libs) version: 10.0.1 on Windows Server

Question: For anyone in the community, this is my first time using Openvas. I ran the scans and i am getting severe vulnerability in the scan report. The host mentioned in the scan is a windows host. Based on the error, do i need to update GVM_Libs on Openvas host or does that have to be done on a Windows server? because i tried checking Windows server for GVM_Lib and could not find it. I would really appreciate if someone in the community point me in the right direction

Below is the snapshot of the error

NOTE: While this is not, in and of itself, a security vulnerability, a severity is reported to make you aware of a possible decreased scan coverage or missing detection of vulnerabilities on the target due to e.g.:

  • missing functionalities

  • missing bugfixes

  • incompatibilities within the feed.

It doesn’t mean your window server has an outdated gvm-libs version. It means you are using an outdated version of our software. See Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
