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


The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 6.1.x including 6.1.20 or 7.1.x prior to 7.1.21 or 8.0.x prior to 8.0.14 or 8.1.x prior to 8.1.4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability that exists in OpenSSL due to failure of handling the exception conditions during the TLS handshake. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue , via malicious server to send large prime value to the client to spend unreasonably long time for generating the key for this prime resulting hang until the client finished. (CVE-2018-0732)

- An information disclosure vulnerability that exists in OpenSSL RSA key generation algorithm due to a cache timing side channel attack. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, via cache timing attacks during the RSA key generation process, to recover the private key. (CVE-2018-0737)

- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability that exists in OpenSSL due to a constructed ASN.1 types with a recursive definition. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via creating malicious input with excessive recursion, to cause the Denial Of Service attack. (CVE-2018-0739)


Upgrade to Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS version 7.1.21 / 8.0.14 / 8.1.4 or later.
