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: 9.7
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a Buffer Overflow vulnerability, leading to Denial of Service, and potentially to Arbitrary Code Execution.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the remote SonicWall firewall is running a version of SonicOS that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability, allowing a remote attacker to cause Denial of Service (DoS), and potentially execute arbitrary code by sending a malicious request to the firewall. This vulnerability affected SonicOS Gen 6 version 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, SonicOSv 6.5.4.v and Gen 7 version 188.8.131.52.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
