Synopsis :

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by several
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is earlier
than 6.0.2. It is, therefore, potentially affected by several issues :

- A time-of-check-to-time-of-use issue in the handling
of JavaScript array in WebKit could lead to arbitrary,
remote code execution. (CVE-2012-3748)

- A use-after-free issue in the handling of SVG images
in WebKit code could lead to arbitrary, remote code
execution. (CVE-2012-5112)
