Description

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: ip6_tunnel: make sure to pull inner header in __ip6_tnl_rcv() syzbot found __ip6_tnl_rcv() could access unitiliazed data [1]. Call pskb_inet_may_pull() to fix this, and initialize ipv6h variable after this call as it can change skb->head.

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.
