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 device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability when running in a virtualized environment due to improper handling of authentication. An attacker on the Junos guest can exploit this to escalate privileges and gain access to the host operating system.
SolutionUpgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper security advisory JSA10787. Alternatively, as a workaround, enable FIPS mode.
