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.

SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a code injection vulnerability known as Shellshock.
DescriptionThe remote host has a version of McAfee Email Gateway (MEG) installed that is affected by a command injection vulnerability in GNU Bash known as Shellshock. The vulnerability is due to the processing of trailing strings after function definitions in the values of environment variables.
