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 has an application installed that is affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Python installed on the remote Windows host is 3.6.x prior to 3.6.12, 3.7.x prior to 3.7.9, 3.8.x prior to 3.8.4, or 3.9.x prior to 3.9.0b5. It is, therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability. A Trojan horse python3.dll might be used in cases where CPython is embedded in a native application. This occurs because python3X.dll may use an invalid search path for python3.dll loading (after Py_SetPath has been used).
SolutionUpgrade to Python 3.6.12, 3.7.9, 3.8.4, 3.9.0b5 or later.
