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 device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, Cisco IOS XR Software is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in task group assignment for a specific CLI command due to incorrect mapping to task groups. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by first authenticating to the local CLI shell on the device and using the CLI command to bypass the task group–based checks. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to elevate privileges and gain full administrative control of the device. There are workarounds that address this vulnerability.
