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: 7.4


The backup service running on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


According to its version and build number, the HP Data Protector application running on the remote host is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow condition in the backup client service daemon (OmniInet.exe). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via an MSG_PROTOCOL command with long arguments, to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
