Description

PSI Jabber client before 0.12.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a file transfer request with a negative value in a SOCKS5 option, which bypasses a signed integer check and triggers an integer overflow and a heap-based buffer overflow.

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.
