HP Version Control Agent (VCA) Heartbeat Information Disclosure (Heartbleed)

high Nessus Plugin ID 77023
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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.
