Description

Mozilla Firefox 3.5 ships with a flawed implementation of the Just-in-time (JIT) JavaScript compiler (aka TraceMonkey). This could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain use of the escape function that triggers access to uninitialized memory locations, as originally demonstrated by a document containing P and FONT elements.

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.
