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: 3.8
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated python-lxml packages fix security vulnerability :
The clean_html() function, provided by the lxml.html.clean module, did not properly clean HTML input if it included non-printed characters (\x01-\x08). A remote attacker could use this flaw to serve malicious content to an application using the clean_html() function to process HTML, possibly allowing the attacker to inject malicious code into a website generated by this application (CVE-2014-3146).
SolutionUpdate the affected python-lxml, python-lxml-docs and / or python3-lxml packages.
