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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The remote Windows host has a program that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The remote host is running a version of Sun Microsystems that is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow in its RTF document parser that is triggered when parsing 'prtdata' tags. If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a specially crafted RTF document, he can execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the user's privileges.


Upgrade to Sun Microsystems version 2.2.1 or later.
