Description

The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 update 4 and earlier, 5 update 14 and earlier as well as 1.4.2_16 and earlier suffer from a flaw in the Java API. This flaw can potentially allow attackers to run untrusted network-aware javascript, granting them access to the victim's adjacent network.

Solution(s)

  • jre-upgrade-latest

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.
