Description

The plug-in interface in WebKit in Apple Safari before 3.2 does not prevent plug-ins from accessing local URLs, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via vectors that "launch local files."

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-3_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.
