Description

The osi_print_cksum function in print-isoclns.c in the ethernet printer in tcpdump before 4.7.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and crash) via a crafted (1) length, (2) offset, or (3) base pointer checksum value.

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.
