The JOE editor is known to dump the contents of the currently opened file to a temporary 'DEADJOE' file when aborted. If the webmaster edits a script with JOE and it aborts, then the contents of that script can be disclosed inadvertently.

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.
