Safari < 3.1.1 PCRE Nested Repetition Count Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Apple Safari that is less than 3.1.1.

This version of Safari is vulnerable to a remote exploit. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to entice a user to browse to a malicious URI and further entice the user to download a file. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitary code. In addition, this version of Safari is running a version of AppleWebKit that is less than 525.18. There are a number of flaws associated with that version of AppleWebKit as well.

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.1.1 or higher.
