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 host is affected by a man-in-the-middle vulnerability.


The remote host is running a version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS prior to 5.0.14 / 5.1.9 / 6.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the included OpenSSL library that can cause the client or server to use weak keying material, which a remote attacker can exploit to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack.


Upgrade to PAN-OS version 5.0.14 / 5.1.9 / 6.0.4 or later.
