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: 2.7


The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.


It was found that the OpenLDAP server daemon ignored olcTLSCipherSuite settings. This resulted in the default cipher suite always being used, which could lead to weaker than expected ciphers being accepted during Transport Layer Security (TLS) negotiation with OpenLDAP clients.


Run 'yum update openldap' to update your system.
