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: 3.8


The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Fortinet FortiOS running on the remote device is 5.4.x prior to 5.4.6, or 5.6.x prior to 5.6.1. It is, therefore, affected by a Cross-site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability that allows attackers to execute unauthorized code or commands via the filter input in Applications under FortiView.


Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 5.4.6 / 5.6.1 or later.
