Description

Integer overflow in FreeType before 2.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PCF file, as demonstrated by the Red Hat bad1.pcf test file, due to a partial fix of CVE-2006-1861.

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.
