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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a media player that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of VLC media player installed on the remote host is prior to 2.1.5. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An error exists in the png_push_read_chunk() function within the file 'pngpread.c' from the included libpng library that can allow denial of service attacks.
- A buffer overflow error exists in the read_server_hello() function within the file 'lib/gnutls_handshake.c' from the included GnuTLS library that can allow arbitrary code execution or denial of service. (CVE-2014-3466)
- A heap-based buffer overflow error exists in the transcode module due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling invalid channel counts. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-6440)
SolutionUpgrade to version 2.1.5 or later.
