CVE-2018-1141

HIGH
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

When installing Nessus to a directory outside of the default location, Nessus versions prior to 7.0.3 did not enforce secure permissions for sub-directories. This could allow for local privilege escalation if users had not secured the directories in the installation location.
