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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.4


An application server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Oracle WebLogic Server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Java Messaging Service subcomponent in the readExternal() function due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted object payload, to bypass the ClassFilter.class blacklist and execute arbitrary Java code. (CVE-2016-0638)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist in the Console subcomponent that allow a remote attacker to affect confidentiality and integrity. (CVE-2016-0675, CVE-2016-0696, CVE-2016-0700, CVE-2016-3416)

- An unspecified vulnerability exists in the Core Components subcomponent that allows a remote attacker to affect integrity. (CVE-2016-0688)
