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: 9


The remote host is missing a security update that mitigates multiple vulnerabilities in a video codec.


The remote host is missing KB955759. This KB mitigates multiple vulnerabilities in the Indeo video codec by preventing it from being used by Internet Explorer or Windows Media Player. A remote attacker can exploit these issues by tricking a user into viewing a maliciously crafted video file, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, and 2003.
