An application running on the remote Windows host is affected by an arbitrary file upload vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version, the Tenable Nessus application running on the remote host is 6.8.x, 6.9.x, or 6.10.x prior to 6.10.2.
It is, therefore, affected by an arbitrary file upload vulnerability due to an unspecified flaw. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to upload a specially crafted file to an arbitrary system location.
