Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. The graphics library GD used by several applications is vulnerable to arithmetic failures that may lead to buffer overflows afterwards. The bug can be exploited remotely by tricking a user or network application to open a malformated PNG image. A successful exploitation results in arbitrary code execution.

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.
