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.

SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionIt was discovered that Salt allows remote attackers to determine which files exist on the server. An attacker could use that to extract sensitive information. (CVE-2018-15750) It was discovered that Salt has a vulnerability that allows an user to bypass authentication. An attacker could use that to extract sensitive information, execute abritrary code or crash the server. (CVE-2018-15751) It was discovered that Salt is vulnerable to command injection. This allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access to the API endpoint to execute arbitrary code on the salt-api host. (CVE-2019-17361) It was discovered that Salt incorrectly validated method calls and sanitized paths. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to access some methods without authentication. (CVE-2020-11651, CVE-2020-11652).
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
