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 host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Checkpoint Endpoint Security Initial Client. that is vulnerable to a local privilege escalation vulnerability. The vulnerability exists because vulnerable versions attempt to load a DLL that is placed in any PATH location on a clean install. An attacker could leverage this by creating a specially crafted DLL and placing it in any PATH location, when the victim installs Check Point Endpoint Security Initial Client, the DLL will be executed as that user.
