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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.4


A management service on the remote host has a command injection vulnerability.


The version of SAN/iQ running on the remote host has a command injection vulnerability. The hydra service, used for remote management and configuration, does not properly sanitize untrusted input. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary commands as root. Authentication is required, but can be bypassed easily by using default, hard-coded credentials.


Upgrade to HP SAN/iQ 9.5 or later.
