Description

The tomboy mediaplayer used LD_LIBRARY_PATH unsafely by allowing empty LD_LIBRARY_PATH components.

This would enable the player to load its shared libraries of the current directory which might contain user supplied shared libraries, potentially supplied from the network by an attacker.

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.
