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.

CVE-2018-16395: OpenSSL::X509::Name equality check does not work correctly
An instance of OpenSSL::X509::Name contains entities such as CN, C and so on. Some two instances of OpenSSL::X509::Name are equal only when all entities are exactly equal. However, there is a bug that the equality check is not correct if the value of an entity of the argument (right-hand side) starts with the value of the receiver (left-hand side). So, if a malicious X.509 certificate is passed to compare with an existing certificate, there is a possibility to be judged incorrectly that they are equal.
CVE-2018-16396: Tainted flags are not propagated in Array#pack and String#unpack with some directives
Array#pack method converts the receiver's contents into a string with specified format. If the receiver contains some tainted objects, the returned string also should be tainted. String#unpack method which converts the receiver into an array also should propagate its tainted flag to the objects contained in the returned array. But, with B, b, H and h directives, the tainted flags are not propagated. So, if a script processes unreliable inputs by Array#pack and/or String#unpack with these directives and checks the reliability with tainted flags, the check might be wrong.
