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: 4.2
SynopsisThe remote name server is affected by a configuration bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the version of the PowerDNS Authoritative listening on the remote host is prior to 4.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability in the API where a remote authenticated attacker can perform operations that affect the server state even if the api-readonly configuration is enabled.
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
Also, Nessus has not checked for the presence of the patch.
SolutionUpgrade to PowerDNS Authoritative 4.0.5 or later. Alternatively, apply the patches referenced in the vendor advisories.
