Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. A buffer overflow and a shell meta character problem within the acrobat reader has been fixed, which allowed attackers to execute arbitrary commands as the user viewing a specially crafted document.

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.
