Description

The International Components for Unicode (ICU) library in Apple Mac OS X before 10.5.3, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and other operating systems omits some invalid character sequences during conversion of some character encodings, which might allow remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

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.
