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: 9.8
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of FortiOS 5.6.3 prior to 5.6.8 or 6.0.x prior to 6.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by a directory traversal vulnerability in the SSL VPN web portal, due to improper sanitization of path traversal characters in URLs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to download arbitrary FortiOS system files.
SolutionUpgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version to 5.6.8, 6.0.5, 6.2.0 or later.
