Description

The Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) feature in Apple Safari before 5.1.4 on Windows does not properly restrict the characters in URLs, which allows remote attackers to spoof a domain name via unspecified homoglyphs.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-5_1_4
  • 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.
