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: 4.2


The remote application is susceptible to an authentication bypass attack.


The remote host has a version of SAProuter that is affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability. When started with the '-X' flag, SAProuter permits routing to itself given a 'saprouttab' that allows access to its port. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can issue commands to SAProuter.


Restart SAProuter without '-X' and review the permissions in 'saprouttab'.
