Description

Updated ht://dig packages fix a DOS attack and a potential (yet unlikely) security problem.

In the previous version, the htsearch CGI script used to accept the -c switch remotely--asking htdig to use a different configuration file. The update removes this potential exploit.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-htdig
  • redhat-upgrade-htdig-web

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.
