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: 4.4

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several local side channel attacks and a denial of service via large Diffie-Hellman parameters were discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure Sockets Layer toolkit.

Solution

Upgrade the openssl packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.0j-1~deb9u1. Going forward, openssl security updates for stretch will be based on the 1.1.0x upstream releases.
