A flaw was found in the handling of the scoreboard. An unprivileged child process could cause the parent process to crash at shutdown rather than terminate cleanly.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
