Safari Unsupported

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is no longer
supported.

Description :

The remote Windows host has an install of Safari, a web browser.

While there has been no formal announcement, Apple appears to have
discontinued support for Safari on Windows and has not released any
updates since version 5.1.7 in May 9, 2012.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product
will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain
security vulnerabilities.
