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


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


The version of PostgreSQL installed on the remote host is 9.5 prior to 9.5.23, 9.6 prior to 9.6.19, 10 prior to 10.14, 11 prior to 11.9, or 12 prior to 12.4. As such, it is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Uncontrolled search path element in logical replication (CVE-2020-14349)

- Uncontrolled search path element in CREATE EXTENSION (CVE-2020-14350)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to PostgreSQL 9.5.23 / 9.6.19 / 10.14 / 11.9 / 12.4 or later
