Hi there,

The old jQuery version is a known issue. We are currently in the process to rewrite the whole UI Client and will therefore not patch the framework version here, unless a critical vulnerability that is applicable to PRTG comes up. The known vulnerabilities for the Version in question do not apply to PRTG
