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: 7.4


The version of HP LoadRunner installed on the remote host contains a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of HP LoadRunner installed on the remote host reportedly blindly trusts user-supplied data as an allocation size and uses to copy data from a request packet into a statically allocated heap buffer.

A remote attacker who is able to contact TCP ports 5001 or 5002 on the remote host can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with SYSTEM privileges.


Either upgrade to HP LoadRunner 10.0 or close ports 5001 and 5002 as described in the vendor's advisory.
