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 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.
