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: 2.5


The remote Windows host has a service installed that is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


The version of IBM WebSphere MQ server 7.1 installed on the remote Windows host is missing fix pack or later. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability where client applications can bypass the security configuration setup on an MQ SVRCONN channel, allowing unauthorized users access to the queue manager.


Apply fix pack or later.
