Description

The TeX filter in Moodle 1.6 before 1.6.9+, 1.7 before 1.7.7+, 1.8 before 1.8.9, and 1.9 before 1.9.5 allows user-assisted attackers to read arbitrary files via an input command in a "$$" sequence, which causes LaTeX to include the contents of the file.

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.
