Description

libsoup from versions 2.65.1 until 2.68.1 have a heap-based buffer over-read because soup_ntlm_parse_challenge() in soup-auth-ntlm.c does not properly check an NTLM message's length before proceeding with a memcpy.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libsoup2-4-1

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.
