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: 5.9


The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote host is running FortiOS version 5.x prior to 5.4.11, 5.6.x prior to 5.6.8 or 6.x prior to 6.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability that allows an authenticated, regular user to change the routing settings of the device via connecting to the ZebOS component.


Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 5.4.11, 5.6.8, 6.0.3 or later.
