Description

bgpd in Quagga before 0.99.9 allows explicitly configured BGP peers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a malformed (1) OPEN message or (2) a COMMUNITY attribute, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference. NOTE: vector 2 only exists when debugging is enabled.

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.
