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.

SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe TERASOLUNA Framework Development Team discovered a denial of service vulnerability in Apache Commons FileUpload, a package to make it easy to add robust, high-performance, file upload capability to servlets and web applications. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw by sending file upload requests that cause the HTTP server using the Apache Commons Fileupload library to become unresponsive, preventing the server from servicing other requests.
SolutionUpgrade the libcommons-fileupload-java packages.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.1-1+deb8u1.
