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: 4.9


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Mark Dowd discovered a buffer overflow in the mod_rewrite component of apache, a versatile high-performance HTTP server. In some situations a remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade the apache2 package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.54-5sarge1.
