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: 8.5


The remote device is potentially affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


The remote Blue Coat ProxySG device's SGOS self-reported version is 4.x and reportedly contains a bundled version of OpenSSL that has multiple flaws. It is, therefore, potentially affected by an unspecified error that could allow an attacker to cause usage of weak keying material, leading to simplified man-in-the-middle attacks.


Note that ProxySG 4.0.x, 4.1.x, 4.2.x and 4.3.x will not receive a patch for this issue.

Please contact the vendor for upgrade options.
