Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in the Icmp6::Recv function in icmp/Icmp6.cc in the pinger utility in Squid before 3.5.16 and 4.x before 4.0.8 allows remote servers to cause a denial of service (performance degradation or transition failures) or write sensitive information to log files via an ICMPv6 packet.

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.
