Description

CFNetwork in Apple iOS before 5.0.1 and Mac OS X 10.7 before 10.7.2 does not properly parse URLs, which allows remote attackers to trigger visits to unintended web sites, and transmission of cookies to unintended web sites, via a crafted (1) http or (2) https URL.

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.
