Description

The Virtual Machine in Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 7, JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 16 as well as SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_18 allows context-dependent attackers to gain privileges via an untrusted application or applet. This can potentially allow attackers to read, write or execute local programs or files.

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.
