Description

The "Clear History and Website Data" feature in Apple Safari before 9.1.1, as used in iOS before 9.3.2 and other products, mishandles the deletion of browsing history, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging read access to a Safari directory.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-9_1_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.
