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's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.3
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201707-01 (IcedTea: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in IcedTea. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
Note: If the web browser plug-in provided by the dev-java/icedtea-web package was installed, the issues exposed via Java applets could have been exploited without user interaction if a user visited a malicious website.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, gain access to information, or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
