Description

Apple Safari before 3.1.2 on Windows does not properly interpret the URLACTION_SHELL_EXECUTE_HIGHRISK Internet Explorer zone setting, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions, and force a client system to download and execute arbitrary files.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-3_1_2
  • apple-safari-windows-uninstall

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.
