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.
