Safari < 3.2.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 35687

Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser with multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Safari installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 3.2.2. Such versions reportedly have multiple security vulnerabilities :

- Input validation issues in their handling of 'feed:' URLs, which could be abused to execute arbitrary JavaScript code in the local security zone.

- A cached certificate is not required before displaying a lock icon for a HTTPS website. This allows a man- in-the-middle attacker to present the user with spoofed web pages over HTTPS that appear to be from a legitimate source.

- The browser processes a 3xx HTTP CONNECT before a successful SSL handshake, which could allow a man-in- the-middle attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of a HTTPS site.

Solution

Upgrade to Safari 3.2.2 or later.
