Description

An issue was discovered in DAViCal Andrew's Web Libraries (AWL) through 0.60. Session management does not use a sufficiently hard-to-guess session key. Anyone who can guess the microsecond time (and the incrementing session_id) can impersonate a session.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libawl-php

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.
