Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by several vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is earlier than 4.0.2 As such, it is potentially affected by two issues :

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

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Safari 4.0.2 or later.
