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

DescriptionTomas Hoger reports :
The compress/ LZW decompress implentation does not correctly handle compressed streams that contain code words that were not yet added to the decompression table. This may lead to arbitrary memory corruption.
Successfull exploitation may possible lead to a local privilege escalation.
