|CVSS Meta Temp Score|
CVSS is a standardized scoring system to determine possibilities of attacks. The Temp Score considers temporal factors like disclosure, exploit and countermeasures. The unique Meta Score calculates the average score of different sources to provide a normalized scoring system.
|Current Exploit Price (≈)|
Our analysts are monitoring exploit markets and are in contact with vulnerability brokers. The range indicates the observed or calculated exploit price to be seen on exploit markets. A good indicator to understand the monetary effort required for and the popularity of an attack.
|CTI Interest Score|
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence team is monitoring different web sites, mailing lists, exploit markets and social media networks. The CTI Interest Score identifies the interest of attackers and the security community for this specific vulnerability in real-time. A high score indicates an elevated risk to be targeted for this vulnerability.
A vulnerability classified as problematic has been found in Unix (Operating System) (the affected version unknown). This affects an unknown functionality of the component lpr. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a privilege escalation vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-61. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality.
The bug was discovered 07/05/1984. The weakness was released 01/21/1985 (Website). It is possible to read the advisory at securitydigest.org. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. The successful exploitation needs a authentication. Technical details are unknown but an exploit is available.
After even before and not, there has been an exploit disclosed. It is declared as proof-of-concept. The vulnerability was handled as a non-public zero-day exploit for at least 200 days. During that time the estimated underground price was around $0-$5k.
There is no information about possible countermeasures known. It may be suggested to replace the affected object with an alternative product.
