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: 8.9
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe installed version of Firefox is earlier than 23.0 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :
