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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote host may be affected by unauthorized code execution which could possibly lead to memory corruption.
DescriptionThe version of Fortinet FortiOS running on the remote device is 5.6.0.
It is, therefore, affected by a remote execution vulnerability which can be exploited via the SSH username variable. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication and execute arbitrary commands which could cause memory corruption
SolutionUpgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 5.6.1 or later.
