high Nessus Plugin ID 77023
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: 7.3


The remote host contains software that is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The RPM installation of HP Version Control Agent (VCA) on the remote Linux host is version 7.2.2, 7.3.0, or 7.3.1. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

An out-of-bounds read error, known as the 'Heartbleed Bug', exists related to handling TLS heartbeat extensions that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information such as primary key material, secondary key material, and other protected content.


Upgrade to VCA 7.3.2 or later.
