Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. Security Update: Chris Evans reported three vulnerabilities in libXpm which can be exploited remotely by providing malformed XPM image files. The function xpmParseColors() is vulnerable to an integer overflow and a stack-based buffer overflow. The functions ParseAndPutPixels() as well as ParsePixels() is vulnerable stack-based buffer overflow too. Additionally Matthieu Herrb found two one-byte buffer overflows.

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.
