the remote Mac OS X host is 10.x equal to or earlier than 10.3.183.18
or 11.x equal to or earlier than 184.108.40.206. It is, therefore,

of the target system.
By tricking a victim into visiting a specially crafted page, an
attacker may be able to utilize this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary code subject to the users' privileges.
