ViewVC before 1.1.11 allows remote attackers to bypass the cvsdb row_limit configuration setting, and consequently conduct resource-consumption attacks, via the limit parameter, as demonstrated by a "query revision history" request.

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.
