Description

The buf.pl script before 2.20 in Irssi before 0.8.20 uses weak permissions for the scrollbuffer dump file created between upgrades, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from private chat conversations by reading the file.

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.
