Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. This update adds a fix from 3.0.1rc14 to the dynamical DNS code that restricts the total length of DDNS domain names with client provided hostnames to 255 characters, to avoid possible security problems. These problems may be exploitable by remote users to execute arbitrary code. Only DHCP servers configured for dynamical DNS are affected.

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.
