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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Theodore Ts'o reports :

On a carefully crafted filesystem that gets modified through tune2fs or debugfs, it is possible to trigger a buffer overrun when the file system is closed via closefs().


Update the affected package.
