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


The remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


The remote host is running a FortiOS version prior to 6.2.6 or 6.4.x prior to 6.4.2. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. An authenticated attacker may be able perform a reflected cross-site scripting attack by injecting unsantized input into multiple parameters of the error page HTTP request.

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


Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 6.2.6, 6.4.2 or later.
