Description

login/change_password.php in Moodle 1.9.x before 1.9.15 does not use https for the change-password form even if the httpslogin option is enabled, which allows remote attackers to obtain credentials by sniffing the network.

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.
