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: 5.8
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis updates fixes a potential integer overflow in option parsing.
A user in the group 'dip' could provide a specially crafted configuration file of more than 2G and generate an integer overflow.
This may enable an attacker to overwrite the heap and thereby corrupt security-relevant variables.
See details in the upstream commit:
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected ppp, ppp-dev, and ppp-udeb packages.
