Description

WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1 uses predictable random numbers in JavaScript applications, which makes it easier for remote web servers to track the behavior of a Safari user during a session.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-4_0
  • 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.
