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: 3.4
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew OpenSSL packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current to fix a security issue. Under certain conditions, an attacker acting as a 'man in the middle' may force a client and server to fall back to the less-secure SSL 2.0 protocol.
