Description

mod_nss 1.0.8 and earlier, when NSSVerifyClient is set to none for the server/vhost context, does not enforce the NSSVerifyClient setting in the directory context, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions.

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.
