Description

The silc_asn1_encoder function in lib/silcasn1/silcasn1_encode.c in Secure Internet Live Conferencing (SILC) Toolkit before 1.1.8 allows remote attackers to overwrite a stack location and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted OID value, related to incorrect use of a %lu format string.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-silc-toolkit
  • suse-upgrade-silc-toolkit-devel

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.
