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: 1.4

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

- Added a patch to fix errors in the pkcs11n.h header file. (bmo#702090)

- update to 3.13.1 RTM

- better SHA-224 support (bmo#647706)

- fixed a regression (causing hangs in some situations) introduced in 3.13 (bmo#693228)

- update to 3.13.0 RTM

- SSL 2.0 is disabled by default

- A defense against the SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 CBC chosen plaintext attack demonstrated by Rizzo and Duong (CVE-2011-3389) is enabled by default. Set the SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV SSL option to PR_FALSE to disable it.

- SHA-224 is supported

- Ported to iOS. (Requires NSPR 4.9.)

- Added PORT_ErrorToString and PORT_ErrorToName to return the error message and symbolic name of an NSS error code
