Description

WebKit in Apple Safari before 4.0.3 does not properly restrict the URL scheme of the pluginspage attribute of an EMBED element, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to launch arbitrary file: URLs and obtain sensitive information via a crafted HTML document.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-4_0_3
  • 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.
