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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that a heap overflow in the Vorbis audio compression library could lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed Ogg Vorbis file is processed.


Upgrade the libvorbis packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.1-1+squeeze1.
