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: 6.5


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Oracle Database Server is missing the January 2017 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the OJVM component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3310)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the RDBMS Security component that allows a combined attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2017-3240)


Apply the appropriate patch according to the January 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
