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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6


The remote host is running a remote management application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote host is running a version of SolarWinds DameWare Mini Remote Control prior to 12.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability. A classic buffer overflow allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to cause a denial of service by sending a large 'SigPubkeyLen' during ECDH key exchange.


Upgrade to SolarWinds DameWare Mini Remote Control v12.1.1 or later.
