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: 3


The network management framework on the remote web server has an HTTP response splitting vulnerability.


The version of CiscoWorks Common Services on the remote host has an HTTP response splitting vulnerability. Common Services is a framework included with several Cisco products. Input to the 'URL' parameter of Autologin.jsp is not properly sanitized.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into making a malicious request, resulting in the injection of HTTP headers, modification of the HTTP response body, or splitting the HTTP response into multiple responses.
