Description

If Sendmail receives an unusually long IDENT request, it does not properly log the client's IP address. It is possible for an attacker to combine this weakness with a serious attack in order to escape detection.

Solution(s)

  • sendmail-upgrade-8_12_7

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.
