critical Nessus Plugin ID 25767
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Windows host contains an application that is prone to a buffer overflow attack.


The remote host is running NetVault Report Manager, a tool for monitoring backup reports.

The Server and Client Scheduler components included in the version of NetVault Report Manager installed on the remote host suffer from a heap overflow vulnerability that can occur when processing overly long filename arguments to 'GET' and 'POST' requests. Code execution is possible under the context of the SYSTEM user.


Upgrade to NetVault Report Manager v3.5 Update 4 or later.
