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: 7.4


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a code injection flaw.


The version of OpenAdmin Tool installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. The welcomeService.php file offers a SOAP interface, which does not validate code passed to the 'saveHomePage' method, allowing a remote attacker to save arbitrary code into 'config.php', which is accessible to remote users. A remote attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the target service.


Upgrade to version 3.16 or later.
