High Nessus Plugin ID 80055
SynopsisThe remote host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe 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)
