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: 3.6

Synopsis

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

Description

A flaw was found in the way libtasn1 decoded DER data. An attacker could create carefully-crafted DER encoded input (such as an X.509 certificate) that, when parsed by an application that uses libtasn1 (such as applications using GnuTLS), could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2012-1569)

Solution

Run 'yum update libtasn1' to update your system.
