MFSA2016-85 Firefox: Security vulnerabilities fixed in Firefox 49 (CVE-2016-5282)
Mozilla Firefox before 49.0 does not properly restrict the scheme in favicon requests, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via unspecified vectors, as demonstrated by a jar: URL for a favicon resource.
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.
