Description

Stack-based buffer overflow in the String_parse::get_nonspace_quoted function in lib-src/allegro/strparse.cpp in Audacity 1.2.6 and other versions before 1.3.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a .gro file containing a long string.

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.
