Safari < 3.1.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Safari installed on the remote host reportedly is affected by several issues :

- An out-of-bounds memory read while handling BMP and GIF images may lead to information disclosure (CVE-2008-1573). - Safari will automatically launch executable files downloaded from a site if that site is in an IE7 zone with 'Launching applications and unsafe files' set to 'Enable' or an IE6 'Local intranet ' / ' Trusted sites' zone (CVE-2008-2306). - There is a memory corruption issue in WebKit's handling of JavaScript arrays that could be leveraged to crash the application or execute arbitrary code if visiting a malicious site (CVE-2008-2307). - When handling an object with an unrecognized content type, Safari does not prompt the user before downloading the object (aka, the 'carpet-bombing' issue). If the download location is the Windows Desktop (the default), this could lead to arbitrary code execution (CVE-2008-2540). IAVT Reference : 2009-T-0021 STIG Finding Severity : Category II

Solution

Update to version 3.1.2 or higher.
