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.

DescriptionUpdated perl-XML-LibXML package fixes security vulnerability :
Tilmann Haak from xing.com discovered that XML::LibXML did not respect the expand_entities parameter to disable processing of external entities in some circumstances.
