Georgi Guninski discovered a potential integer overflow in the code that handles mail formatted as text/enhanced or text/richtext. This could in turn lead to a buffer overflow and potential code execution.To exploit this flaw a malicious mail message would have to include a line more than 400 megabytes long. Many mail systems have storage quotas and transport filters that would prevent a message of that size from reaching its destination, but should the message get through its size would provide more than sufficient space for a payload.
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.
