Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


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 6.2.2 / 7.1.2 / 8.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities in WebKit :

- An SVG loaded in an IMG element could load a CSS file cross-origin. This can allow data exfiltration.

- A UI spoofing flaw exists in the handling of scrollbar boundaries. Visiting websites that frame malicious content can allow the UI to be spoofed. (CVE-2014-1748)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that can lead to an unexpected application crash or potential arbitrary code execution by means of malicious website content.
(CVE-2014-4452, CVE-2014-4459, CVE-2014-4466, CVE-2014-4468, CVE-2014-4469, CVE-2014-4470, CVE-2014-4471, CVE-2014-4472, CVE-2014-4473, CVE-2014-4474, CVE-2014-4475)

Note that the 6.2.2 / 7.1.2 / 8.0.2 Safari updates include the security content of the 6.2.1 / 7.1.1 / 8.0.1 updates. These more recent updates, however, were released to fix potential issues with the installation of the previous patch release.


Upgrade to Apple Safari 6.2.2 / 7.1.2 / 8.0.2 or later.
