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
SynopsisThe remote AIX host is missing a security patch.
DescriptionA version of the Network Time Protocol (NTP) package installed on the remote AIX host is affected by an integrity vulnerability due to an improperly implemented threshold limitation for the '-g' option. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to intercept the NTP traffic and return arbitrary date and time values to the user.
SolutionInstall the appropriate interim fix as referenced in the vendor advisory.
