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 has a web application running that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Advantech WebAccess application running on the remote host is prior to version 8.2.2017.08.17. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities including SQL Injection, Out-of-Bounds Access, Multiple Buffer Overflows, Externally Controlled Format String, Improper Authentication, Incorrect Permission Assignment for Critical Resource, Incorrect Privilege Assignment, and Uncontrolled Search Path Element.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Advantech WebAccess version V8.2_20170817 or later.
