I don't understand this entry. Why is this vulnerability listed as "critical" on this page, when other references list it as "info", e.g!vul=1291
The wording is derived from the CVSS Meta Score. NVD defines a CVSSv2 Base Score of 10.0. We do not have something similar like "info". See for more details about this risk rating.
