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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe Panda AdminSecure Communications Agent software, which is used for centralized management of Panda Antivirus, is installed on the remote Windows host.
The version of Communications Agent on the remote host trusts a user-supplied length value for a memory allocation when processing traffic to TCP port 19226 or 19227 by default, resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.
SolutionUpgrade to Communications Agent 4.2 or later.
