New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a version prior to 6.2 or 7.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to saved passwords and the incorrect automatic filling of HTML forms. A remote attacker can exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2014-4363)

- Multiple memory corruption errors exist related to the included version of WebKit that can allow application crashes or arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2013-6663, CVE-2014-4410, CVE-2014-4411, CVE-2014-4412, CVE-2014-4413, CVE-2014-4414, CVE-2014-4415)
