critical Nessus Plugin ID 126469
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is running a SCADA application that is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability.


The Advantech WebAccess/SCADA Network Service (webvrpcs.exe) running on the remote host is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied data when processing an IOCTL 10012 RPC request. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a series of crafted requests, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

Note that the software is reportedly affected by additional vulnerabilities; however, this plugin has not tested for these.


Upgrade to WebAccess/SCADA version 8.4.1.
