Description

Stack consumption vulnerability in the KFILE JPEG (kfile_jpeg) plugin in kdegraphics 3, as used by konqueror, digikam, and other KDE image browsers, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption) via a crafted EXIF section in a JPEG file, which results in an infinite recursion.

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.
