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: 3.8
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
