Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. This update fixes a buffer overflow in the handling of BMP images and AVI movies in the ImageMagick image handling routines, potentially allowing an external attacker to gain access to the machine, if ImageMagick scripts are used in scripts parsing remote data. Mitre has reserved CAN-2004-0827 for this issue.

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.
