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 host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The JBoss Application Server installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. A flaw in the doFilter method of the ReadOnlyAccessFilter class, of the HTTP Invoker service doesn't restrict classes for which it performs deserialization.
This allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code via crafted serialized data.

To conduct more accurate test and get precise evidence of RCE exploitation please set 'Perform thorough tests (may disrupt your network or impact scan speed)' setting in the Scan Configuration.
