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: 3.6


A message queuing service installed on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version, the IBM MQ server installed on the remote host is 9.1.x prior to 9.2 CD, or 9.1.0.x prior to LTS, and is therefore affected by an information disclosure vulnerability due to the inclusion of sensitive information in trace files. An unauthenticated, local attacker could exploit this vulnerability, by accessing the trace files, to acquire potentially sensitive information.


Upgrade to IBM MQ 9.2 CD, LTS or later as per the vendor advisory.
