Description

F-Prot 4.6.8 for GNU/Linux allows remote attackers to bypass anti-virus protection via a crafted ELF program with a "corrupted" header that still allows the program to be executed. NOTE: due to an error in the initial disclosure, F-secure was incorrectly stated as the vendor.

Solution(s)

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.
