Synopsis :

A web browser installed on the remote Mac OS X or macOS host is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X or macOS
host is prior to 10.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities in WebKit :

- An unspecified flaw exists in state management due to
improper validation of user-supplied input. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via
specially crafted web content, to disclose sensitive
user information. (CVE-2016-4613)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit these, via specially crafted
web content, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4666,
CVE-2016-4677, CVE-2016-7578)
