Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. Update: This patch fixes a problem with PPTP and MPPE. Insufficient inputvalidation by the PPP daemon (of the MRU negotiated between client andserver) could trigger a buffer overflow in the kernel MPPE decryptioncode. This problem does not affect ordinary PPP connections, onlysystems using MPPE.

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.
