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: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability was discovered in the mod_proxy module in Apache where it did not limit the number of forwarded interim responses, allowing remote HTTP servers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large number of interim responses (CVE-2008-2364).
A cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the mod_proxy_ftp module in Apache that allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via wildcards in a pathname in an FTP URI (CVE-2008-2939).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
