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: 6.8


A network management system installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the version of Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. Unauthorized users have access to the JBoss Application Server Remote Method Invocation services. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code as SYSTEM (on Windows) or root (on Linux).

This plugin determines if DCNM is vulnerable by checking the version number displayed in the web interface. The web interface is not available in older versions of DCNM.


Upgrade to Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager 6.1(2) or later.
