Description

CFNetwork in Apple Safari before 5.0.6 on Windows does not properly handle an untrusted attribute of a system root certificate, which allows remote web servers to bypass intended SSL restrictions via a certificate signed by a blacklisted certification authority.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-5_0_6
  • apple-safari-upgrade-5_1
  • 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.
