Description

CFNetwork in Apple Safari before 4.0 on Windows does not properly protect the temporary files created for downloads, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading these files.

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.
