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: 9.6
SynopsisThe remote device is running a version of NX-OS that is affected by Shellshock.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the remote NX-OS device is affected by a command injection vulnerability in GNU Bash known as Shellshock, which is due to the processing of trailing strings after function definitions in the values of environment variables.
