Description

In Wireshark 2.4.0 to 2.4.12 and 2.6.0 to 2.6.6, the RPCAP dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-rpcap.c by avoiding an attempted dereference of a NULL conversation.

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.
