Integer overflow in the terminal emulator in PuTTY before 0.66 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an ECH (erase characters) escape sequence with a large parameter value, which triggers a buffer underflow.

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.
