Description

SSL_Cipher.cpp in EncFS before 1.7.0 does not properly handle integer data sizes when constructing headers intended for randomization of initialization vectors, which makes it easier for local users to obtain sensitive information by defeating cryptographic protection mechanisms.

  • suse-upgrade-encfs

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.
