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: 3.7


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Dan Rosenberg discovered a race condition in FUSE, a Filesystem in USErspace. A local attacker, with access to use FUSE, could unmount arbitrary locations, leading to a denial of service.


Upgrade the fuse packages.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.5.3-4.4+etch1.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.4-1.1+lenny1.
