Description

Debsecan in Wheezy in its default configuration currently fails to download recent vulnerability data due to an URL change.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.4.16+nmu1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your debsecan packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
