Description

Bugzilla 3.2.1, 3.0.7, and 3.3.2, when running under mod_perl, calls the srand function at startup time, which causes Apache children to have the same seed and produce insufficiently random numbers for random tokens, which allows remote attackers to bypass cross-site request forgery (CSRF) protection mechanisms and conduct unauthorized activities as other users.

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.
