Cisco Patches Vulnerability in WebEx
Cisco has just released a CVSS 9 rated update for its WebEx software. In their own words, the unpatched vulnerability “could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system.”
The malicious party would share a Flash file via WebEx’s sharing capabilities to gain control of targeted devices.
So what is the best option here? We recommend rolling out the update or removing WebEx.
