Description

Integer overflow in the soup_base64_encode function in soup-misc.c in libsoup 2.x.x before 2.2.x, and 2.x before 2.24, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string that is converted to a base64 representation.

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.
