Description

Stack-based buffer overflow in the nestlex function in nestlex.c in Socat 1.5.0.0 through 1.7.1.2 and 2.0.0-b1 through 2.0.0-b3, when bidirectional data relay is enabled, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via long command-line arguments.

  • suse-upgrade-socat

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.
