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: 1.4
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionMatthias Andree reports :
Fetchmail version 6.3.9 enabled 'all SSL workarounds' (SSL_OP_ALL) which contains a switch to disable a countermeasure against certain attacks against block ciphers that permit guessing the initialization vectors, providing that an attacker can make the application (fetchmail) encrypt some data for him -- which is not easily the case.
Stream ciphers (such as RC4) are unaffected.
