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: 3.6


The remote Windows host is affected by a .NET Core tampering and information disclosure vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host has an installation of .NET Core with a version 2.1.x < 2.1.7 or 2.2.x < 2.2.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in .NET Core.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass cross-origin resource sharing (CORS), to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2019-0545)

- A tampering vulnerability exists in .NET Core. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to write arbitrary files and directories with limited control of their destinations.
