Description

JDK13Services.getProviders in Sun Java SE 5.0 before Update 20 and 6 before Update 15, and OpenJDK, grants full privileges to instances of unspecified object types, which allows context-dependent attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via an untrusted (1) applet or (2) application.

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.
