Hi Matthew,

I don't have such a setting in my installation - in Extras > My Settings I only have the following:

Rows Per Page
Wizard Rows
Agents filter 	
Alerts filter 	
Configs filter 	
Credentials filter 	
Filters filter 	
Notes filter 	
Overrides filter 	
Port Lists filter 	
Reports filter 	
Report Formats filter 	
Schedules filter 	
Slaves filter 	
Targets filter 	
Tasks filter 	
CPE filter 	
CVE filter 	
NVT filter 	
OVAL filter 	
DFN-CERT filter

Please can you clarify what I need to change.

Many thanks,

In trunk there is the Severity Class setting (Extras > My Settings in GSA).
The class "NVD Vulnerability Severity Ratings" corresponds to the limits
you mentioned.
