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: 4.4


The remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the Microsoft Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) client due to explicitly allowing the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 2.0. A remote attacker can exploit this to force an encrypted SSL 2.0 session with a WebDAV server that has SSL 2.0 enabled, and use a man-in-the-middle attack to decrypt portions of the encrypted traffic, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive information.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, RT, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, and 2012 R2.
