Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. When zip performs recursive folder compression, it does not check for the length of resulting path. If the path is too long, a buffer overflow occurs leading to stack corruption and segmentation fault.

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.
