Description

The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 update 6 and earlier as well as 5.0 update 15 and earlier suffer from two vulnerabilities. The first vulnerability allows unauthorized access to certain URL resources and has the potential to create a denial of service condition for systems running the JRE. The second allows an untrusted applet or application to access certain URL resources as well.

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.
