macOS : Apple Safari < 12.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 121388
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 12.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Input-validation errors exist that allow memory corruption leading to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2019-6212, CVE-2019-6215, CVE-2019-6216, CVE-2019-6217, CVE-2019-6226, CVE-2019-6227, CVE-2019-6233, CVE-2019-6234)

- Input-validation errors exist that allow an attacker to perform cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2019-6228, CVE-2019-6228)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Safari version 12.0.3 or later.
