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: 7.4


A web application development suite installed on the remote Windows host is affected by local privilege escalation vulnerability.


The Windows Druva inSync Client Service (inSyncCPHwnet64.exe) contains a path traversal vulnerability that can be exploited by a local, unauthenticated attacker to execute OS commands with SYSTEM privileges. When processing RPC type 5 requests over TCP port 6064, inSyncCPHwnet64.exe does not properly validate request data prior to passing it to the CreateProcessW() function. By sending a crafted RPC request, an attacker can elevate privileges to SYSTEM.


Upgrade to Druva inSync Client 6.6.4 or later.
