Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. The exim mailer contains a buffer overflow in its header parsing functions which may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code. Only installations with the "verify=header_syntax" config option enabled are vulnerable to this attack. SUSE Linux is not configured that way by default. CAN-2004-0400 has been assigned to this bug.

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.
