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: 5.9


The remote web server contains a PHP script that allows execution of arbitrary commands.


The version of Oracle Secure Backup Administration Server running on the remote host fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied input to the 'uname' parameter of 'login.php'. The system performs some sanitization which limits exploitation of this issue, but code execution is still possible.

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to execute code on the remote host with the privileges of the web server user.

By default the server runs with SYSTEM privileges under Windows.
