Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 6.2.4 / 7.1.4 / 8.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
memory corruption vulnerabilities in WebKit due to improperly
validated user-supplied input. A remote attacker, using a specially
crafted website, can exploit these to execute arbitrary code.

A flaw also exists related to user interface inconsistency that allows
an attacker to conduct phishing attacks by spoofing the URL.
