Description

The LiveConnect implementation in plugin/icedteanp/IcedTeaNPPlugin.cc in IcedTea-Web before 1.4.2 allows local users to read the messages between a Java applet and a web browser by pre-creating a temporary socket file with a predictable name in /tmp.

  • ubuntu-upgrade-icedtea-7-plugin

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.
