New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 1.4


An application installed on the Windows host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


IBM Tivoli Monitoring, a network asset monitoring platform, is installed on the remote Windows host and is using an insecure configuration. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the SOAP interface due to an insecure default configuration. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose SOAP queries that may contain sensitive information.


Apply the interim fix or workaround per the vendor advisory.
