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: 6.7


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


The Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) is missing a vendor-supplied security patch. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the command-line interface (CLI) parser related to processing invalid commands. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this, via certain invalid commands, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

EPICBANANA is one of multiple Equation Group vulnerabilities and exploits disclosed on 2016/08/14 by a group known as the Shadow Brokers.
