Updating OVAL definitions


I have no errors when using

But the mosts recents OVALs definition (secinfo / oval definition) are from 2015
For NVTs and CVE the update looks good

Any Idea ?
Does the lake of update of OVALs definitions can explain that some vulnerabilities are not discovered by openvas ?

Hello marco, welcome to the Greenbone Community!

We are no longer updating the OVAL data in the feed, so this is expected behaviour. In the upcoming release 21.10, we will remove support for OVAL definitions.

However, this is all unrelated to missing vulnerabilities during scans. Only NVTs are executed during scans, all other SecInfo data is just for reference in the scan results.

Please check the https://community.greenbone.net/c/gse/16 forum, if your problem persists.
