Description

Array index error in the make_table function in unlzh.c in the LZH decompression component in gzip 1.3.5, when running on certain platforms, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted GZIP archive that triggers an out-of-bounds write, aka a "stack modification vulnerability."

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.
