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
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202007-62 (PyCrypto: Weak key generation)
It was discovered that PyCrypto incorrectly generated ElGamal key parameters.
Attackers may be able to obtain sensitive information by reading ciphertext data.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionGentoo has discontinued support for PyCrypto. We recommend that users unmerge PyCrypto:
