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


The version of SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) installed on the remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


An unauthenticated, remote attacker can trigger a condition in which SAP Sybase ASE enters an endless loop, causing it to consume all of the available processing time. This causes the entire machine to become unresponsive until the process is terminated manually. An attacker can use this flaw to launch a denial of service (DoS) attack.
