Description

In Moodle before 3.9.1, 3.8.4, 3.7.7 and 3.5.13, teachers of a course were able to assign themselves the manager role within that course.

Solution(s)

  • moodle-upgrade-3_5_13
  • moodle-upgrade-3_7_7
  • moodle-upgrade-3_8_4

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.
