Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. The scp client accidental allowed special characters in filenames to be given by the server. This allowed evil servers to create files outside the working directory under the privilege of the user running the scp client. This bug has been fixed.

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.
