Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. Security Update: This update fixes a format string error in code for key retrieval from hkp keyservers. In addition, a faulty functionality in gpg has been removed that can cause keys to be compromised if ElGamal keys have been used for signing (Remark: The ElGamal error is only significant for those who have used this (undocumented) feature during key generation despite warning messages.).

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.
