Description

The audio system in the Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15 as well as JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 20 does not prevent access to java.lang.System properties by untrusted applets and Java Web Start applications. This allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading these properties.

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.
