Description

Integer overflow in the exif_data_load_data_entry function in libexif/exif-data.c in Libexif before 0.6.16 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code via an image with many EXIF components, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

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.
