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: 5.9


The remote host is running an FTP server that is using a hard-coded password.


Nessus was able to log in to the remote FTP server, using the username 'r' with the password 'r', and identify the remote server as a vulnerable Foscam C1 IP Camera. A remote attacker can exploit this to access its FTP service and the mounted Micro-SD card.


Update to firmware version V-2.x.2.43 or later.
