Mac OS X : Safari < 5.1.10 Memory Corruptions

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


Synopsis :

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by two memory
corruption vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X 10.6 host is
earlier than 5.1.10. It is, therefore, potentially affected by two
memory corruption vulnerabilities in JavaScriptCore's JSArray::sort()
method. By tricking a user into visiting a malicious website, an
attacker could leverage these issues to cause an application crash or
to execute arbitrary code.
