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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral issues have been found in zlib, a compression library. They are basically about improper big-endian CRC calculation, improper left shift of negative integers and improper pointer arithmetic.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.2.8.dfsg-2+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your zlib packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
