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: 5.9


The remote host is affected by a remote command injection vulnerability.


The remote Citrix SD-WAN Center is affected by a remote command injection vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input in the trace_route action of DiagnosticController. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to execute arbitrary commands on the remote host with root privileges.

Note that Nessus can perform an additional check for this vulnerability. To do so, re-run the scan with the setting 'Perform thorough tests (may disrupt your network or impact scan speed)' enabled.


Upgrade to version 10.2.3 or later
