mitre reports

cdf_read_property_info in cdf.c in file through 5.37 does not

restrict the number of CDF_VECTOR elements, which allows a heap-based

buffer overflow (4-byte out-of-bounds write).

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.
