High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 800998

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors

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 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)

Solution

Upgrade to Safari 3.2.3 or later.
