Description

Stack-based buffer overflow in the print_iso9660_recurse function in iso-info (src/iso-info.c) in GNU Compact Disc Input and Control Library (libcdio) 0.79 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (core dump) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a disk or image that contains a long joilet file name.

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.
