High Nessus Plugin ID 45044

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 4.0.5. As such, it is potentially affected by several issues :

- An implementation issue in the handling of cookies set by RSS and Atom feeds could result in a cookie being set when visiting or updating a feed even if Safari is configured to block cookies via the 'Accept Cookies' preference. (CVE-2010-0044)

- A memory corruption issue in WebKit's handling of CSS format() arguments could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0046)

- A use-after-free issue in the handling of HTML object element fallback content could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0047)

- A use-after-free issue in WebKit's parsing of XML documents could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0048)

- A use-after-free issue in the handling of HTML elements containing right-to-left displayed text could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0049)

- A use-after-free issue in WebKit's handling of incorrectly nested HTML tags could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0050)

- An implementation issue in WebKit's handling of cross- origin stylesheet requests when visiting a malicious website could result in disclosure of the content of protected resources on another website. (CVE-2010-0051)

- A use-after-free issue in WebKit's handling of callbacks for HTML elements could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0052)

- A use-after-free issue in the rendering of content with a CSS display property set to 'run-in' could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0053)
