Description

The graphics library GD used by several applications is vulnerable to arithmetic failures that may lead to buffer overflows afterwards. The bug can be exploited remotely by tricking a user or network application to open a malformated PNG image. A successful exploitation results in arbitrary code execution.

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.
