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: 3.6

Synopsis

The remote Windows host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the HTTP 2.0 protocol stack (HTTP.sys) due to improper parsing of HTTP 2.0 requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability, via a specially crafted HTTP packet, to cause the system to become unresponsive, resulting in a denial of service condition.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 10.
