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 host has a virtualization appliance installed that is affected by Shellshock.
DescriptionThe VMware vSphere Replication installed on the remote host is version 5.1.x prior to 22.214.171.124, 5.5.x prior to 126.96.36.199, 5.6.x prior to 188.8.131.52, or 5.8.x prior to 184.108.40.206. It is, therefore, 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. This allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code via environment variable manipulation depending on the configuration of the system
SolutionUpgrade to vSphere Replication 220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124 / 126.96.36.199 or later.
