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: 5.8
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has a service installed that is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.
DescriptionThe IBM WebSphere MQ client installed on the remote Windows host is version 6.x prior to 184.108.40.206 or version 7.x prior to 220.127.116.11. It is, therefore, affected by a heap-based buffer overflow flaw that allows a local attacker, using a specially crafted Client Channel Definition Table (CCDT) file, to gain unauthorized privileges.
SolutionUpgrade to WebSphere MQ Client 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 or later.
