VisiWave Site Survey Report VWR File Handling Overflow

high Nessus Plugin ID 54644
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a file handling overflow vulnerability.


The version of VisiWave Site Survey on the remote host is earlier than 2.1.9 and thus reportedly contains a file handling overflow. If an attacker provides a malicious VWR file and convinces a user to open it with VisiWave, VisiWave may execute malicious code in the context of the user.


Upgrade to version 2.1.9 or above.
