Description

The SPICE Firefox plug-in (spice-xpi) 2.4, 2.3, 2.2, and possibly other versions allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to (1) plugin/nsScriptablePeer.cpp and (2) plugin/plugin.cpp, which trigger multiple uses of an uninitialized pointer.

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.
