The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by several
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
- 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'
- There is a memory corruption issue in WebKit's
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).
