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: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is affected by a code execution vulnerability in the Windows Backup Manager.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host contains a version of the Windows Backup Manager that incorrectly restricts the path used for loading external libraries.
