Description

The OpenPGP protocol was vulnerable to a timing-attack to gain plaintext from ciphertext. The timing difference appears as side effect of the so called quick scan and is only exploitable on systems that accept an arbitrary amount of ciphertext for automatic decryption.

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.
