CFNetwork in Apple Safari before 4.0 misinterprets downloaded image files as local HTML documents in unspecified circumstances, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code by placing it in an image file.

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.
