Description

Buffer overflow in the "read-string!" procedure in the "extras" unit in CHICKEN stable before 4.8.0.5 and development snapshots before 4.8.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a "#f" value in the NUM argument.

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.
