Description

WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0 does not prevent remote loading of local Java applets, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code, gain privileges, or obtain sensitive information via an APPLET or OBJECT element.

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.
