New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Tenable Appliance 3.5 - 4.4.0, and possibly prior versions, contains a flaw in the simpleupload.py script in the Web UI. Through the manipulation of the tns_appliance_session_user parameter, a remote attacker can inject arbitrary commands.
