Description

In Wireshark 2.2.0 to 2.2.4 and 2.0.0 to 2.0.10, there is a Netscaler file parser infinite loop, triggered by a malformed capture file. This was addressed in wiretap/netscaler.c by changing the restrictions on file size.

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.
