Description

The DecodeTCPOptions function in decode.c in Snort before 2.3.0, when printing TCP/IP options using FAST output or verbose mode, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via packets with invalid TCP/IP options, which trigger a null dereference.

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.
