Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

- A vulnerability in WebKit's handling of parent and top objects may allow for cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2009-1724)

- A memory corruption in WebKit's handling of numeric character references could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2009-1725)


Solution

Upgrade to Safari 4.0.2 or later.
