This update fixes some buffer overflows in the tftp client code that handles DNS name lookups. Eploitation can be done using a malicious DNS server and will result in a remote 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.
