Description

The Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 Update 6 and earlier suffers from two vulnerabilities. The first allows context-dependent attackers to gain privileges via an untrusted application or applet. This could potentially allow the attacker to read, write or execute local programs and files. The second vulnerability allows an untrusted applet to access information from another applet.

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.
