Mac OS X : Apple Safari < 6.1.1 / 7.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 71498
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.


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


The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 6.1.1 or 7.0.1. It is, therefore, potentially affected by several issues :

- A use-after-free error exists related to 'inline-block' rendering. (CVE-2013-2909)

- Multiple, unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities exist in WebKit that could lead to unexpected program termination or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5195, CVE-2013-5196, CVE-2013-5197, CVE-2013-5198, CVE-2013-5199, CVE-2013-5225, CVE-2013-5228)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist due to an origin-validation error in which user information is auto-filled into a sub-frame from a different domain. (CVE-2013-5227)


For Mac OS X 10.9, upgrade to 10.9.1, which includes Apple Safari 7.0.1. Otherwise, upgrade to Apple Safari 6.1.1 or later.
