Description

Versions of OpenSSL before 0.9.6b contain a flawed design in which the secret internal state data is taken partially from user input. This may allow an attacker to discover the internal state of the generator, and thus, predict future output. The impact of this vulnerability is not completely known.

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.
