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: 2.2
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe Apache Portable Runtime Project reports :
Note especially a security fix to APR 1.4.4, excessive CPU consumption was possible due to an unconstrained, recursive invocation of apr_fnmatch, as apr_fnmatch processed '*' wildcards. Reimplement apr_fnmatch() from scratch using a non-recursive algorithm now has improved compliance with the fnmatch() spec. (William Rowe)
