Remove Silverlight & Java Plugins from Altiris Client Management Suite

I need a solution

Today I just installed the latest version of Altiris 8.5 RU2 (8.5.4249) and to my horror I realized that I am required to use Silverlight post installation to manage my Altiris NS console. 

Silverlight went end of life in 2011, and is fully unsupported (aka. usuable) on 10/12/2021 (reference). Java, Flash and other plugins have similairly gone end of life with near term dates for completely ending support within the next year or two.

Please completely remove any dependencies for these browser plugins and move towards a browser agnostic framework such as HTML5 to prevent any major issues with using using this product.

Internet Explorer 11, which is required to use Silverlight, since Edge, Chrome, Firefox ended support for this, is also end of life and will be discontinued 1-20-2020 (reference)… so please get this added to the next release so we no longer are tied to IE !!!

Thank you in advance.

* Note, we use Server 2016, please add that as a server option in the forums =)

Cisco WebEx Browser Extension Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

A vulnerability in Cisco WebEx browser extensions could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the affected browser on an affected system. This vulnerability affects the browser extensions for Cisco WebEx Meetings Server and Cisco WebEx Centers (Meeting Center, Event Center, Training Center, and Support Center) when they are running on Microsoft Windows.

The vulnerability is due to a design defect in an application programing interface (API) response parser within the plugin. An attacker that can convince an affected user to visit an attacker-controlled web page or follow an attacker-supplied link with an affected browser could exploit the vulnerability.  If successful, the attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the affected browser.

Cisco has released software updates for Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

This advisory is available at the following link:
https://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-20170124-webex

Security Impact Rating: Critical

CVE: CVE-2017-3823

DLP v15.1 MP1 & Chrome 73

I need a solution

Our endpoints (macOS 10.13.6) all have the DLP agent v15.1 MP1 (15.1.0100.1074) and Google has released the newest version of 73. Would it be okay to allow our endpoints to update Chrome 72 to 73?

I’m asking because in the past there has been user experience issues where Chrome will hang on a white screen or behave abnormally when the DLP agents were updated or when the DLP agent didn’t have support for the latest version of Chrome.
