Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. A source-code review done by the SuSE Security-Team revealed several security problems in libXpm. The bugs are scattered across the whole code and include endless loops, buffer overruns, buffer underruns, code execution via shell meta-chars, path traversal, memory leaks, and integer overflows. These bugs may be used by an attacker to compromise your system through client applications that use libXpm to process data from untrusted sources.

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.
