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: 4.0
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSecurityFocus reports :
GnuTLS is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability because the application fails to properly validate chained X.509 certificates.
Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks by impersonating trusted servers.
Unsuspecting users may be under a false sense of security that can aid attackers in launching further attacks.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
