Description

Apport before 0.108.4 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, before 0.119.2 on Ubuntu 8.10, and before 1.0-0ubuntu5.2 on Ubuntu 9.04 does not properly remove files from the application's crash-report directory, which allows local users to delete arbitrary files via unspecified vectors.

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.
