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: 1.4
SynopsisThe SSH server running on the remote host is affected by a file creation restriction bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of OpenSSH running on the remote host is prior to 7.6. It is, therefore, affected by a file creation restriction bypass vulnerability related to the 'process_open' function in the file 'sftp-server.c' that allows authenticated users to create zero-length files regardless of configuration.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to OpenSSH version 7.6 or later.
