Description

The system is running a vulnerable version of the Mozilla browser. Mozilla 1.7beta allowed remote web pages to read local files in known locations using Liveconnect (requires Java; 1.7alpha and earlier are safe)

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest

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.
