Description

The Sun Java JDK and JRE 6 Update 6 and earlier and 5.0 Update 6 through 15 do not properly prevent execution of applets on older JRE releases. This could potentially allow remote attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in these older releases.

  • 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.
