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: 6.7


The remote host has a virtualization appliance installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of VMware vCenter Server Appliance installed on the remote host is 5.1 earlier than Update 1, and is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An authenticated code execution vulnerability exists in the Virtual Appliance Management Interface.

- The Virtual Appliance Management Interface contains a vulnerability that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to upload files to an arbitrary location.


Upgrade to VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 Update 1 or later.
