Description

PubSub in Apple Safari before 4.0.5 does not properly implement use of the Accept Cookies preference to block cookies, which makes it easier for remote web servers to track users by setting a cookie in a (1) RSS or (2) Atom feed.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-4_0_5
  • 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.
