Safari < 3.2.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Safari installed on the remote Windows host is earlier
than 3.2.3. Such versions are potentially affected by several issues :

- A heap-based buffer overflow issue in the libxml library
when handling long entity names could lead to a crash or
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2008-3529)

- Multiple input validation issues exist in Safari's
handling of 'feed:' URLs, which could be abused to
execute arbitrary JavaScript code. (CVE-2009-0162)

- A memory corruption issue in WebKit's handling of
SVGList objects could lead to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2009-0945)

- The browser uses the HTTP Host header to determine the
context of a 4xx/5xx CONNECT response from a proxy server.
This could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to execute
arbitrary script code in the context of a legitimate server,
circumventing the browser's same-origin policy. (CVE-2009-2058)
