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: 3.6


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


This update fixes a a DER decoding buffer overflow in the MinGW cross compiled libtasn1 and gnutls packages. The mingw-gnutls build also switches to using the system libtasn1 library instead of its bundled copy.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected mingw-libtasn1 and / or mingw32-gnutls packages.
