As a follow-up to vulnerability reported in Mozilla has checked similar constructs in the rest of the MIME handling code. Although no further buffer overflows were found we changed several function calls to use safer versions of the string routines that will be more robust in the face of future code changes.

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.
