medium Nessus Plugin ID 82711


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 prior to 6.2.5 / 7.1.5 / 8.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the state management which can result in the user's browser history not being fully purged from 'history.plist'. (CVE-2015-1112)

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities exist in WebKit due to improperly validated user-supplied input.
A remote attacker, using a specially crafted website, can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-1119, CVE-2015-1120, CVE-2015-1121, CVE-2015-1122, CVE-2015-1124)

- A flaw exists in Webkit when handling credentials for FTP URLs. A remote attacker, using a specially crafted website, can cause the resources of another origin to be accessed. (CVE-2015-1126)

- A flaw exists in the state management which can cause a user's browsing history to be indexed while in private mode. An attacker can use this to gain information on the sites that were visited. (CVE-2015-1127)

- A flaw exists with push notification requests while in private browsing mode that can reveal a user's browsing history when responding to notifications.

- A flaw in client certificate matching allows a remote attacker, using a specially crafted website, to track a user's web traffic. (CVE-2015-1129)
