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
SynopsisA web application running on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe IBM Spectrum Protect Plus (SPP) administrative console running on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to the fact that it allows remote installation of console plugins. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this and CVE-2020-4711 together, via specially crafted HTTP requests, to execute arbitrary code on the system with root privileges.
Note that the application is reportedly affected by other vulnerabilities; however, this plugin has not tested for those issues.
SolutionUpdate the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus RPM package spp-adminconsole to 10.1.6-27 or later. That spp-adminconsole package should be in the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus 10.1.6 build 2045.
