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: 6.1


The remote .Net Framework is susceptible to a denial of service attack.


The remote host is running a version of the .NET Framework component of Microsoft Windows that is suspectible to a denial of service attack due to the way ASP.NET manages request scheduling. Using specially crafted anonymous HTTP requests, an anonymous, remote attacker can cause the web server to become unresponsive until the associated application pool is restarted.

Note that the vulnerable code in the .NET Framework is exposed only through IIS 7.0 when operating in integrated mode.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.5.
