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: 3.6

DescriptionIt was discovered that wireshark, a network protocol analyzer, contained several vulnerabilities in the dissectors for ASTERIX, DHCPv6, NetScaler, LDSS, IAX2, WSP, K12 and STANAG 4607, that could lead to various crashes, denial-of-service or execution of arbitrary code.
