Description

Due to a design flaw, some versions of BEA WebLogic pass the Node Manager keyfile password as an argument on the command line. As a result, any user that has access to a process listing on the machine may capture the password and impersonate the Node Manager account.

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.
