High Nessus Plugin ID 83291

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 6.2.6 / 7.1.6 / 8.0.6. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to cause a denial of service condition or to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1152, CVE-2015-1153, and CVE-2015-1154)

- An information disclosure vulnerability in WebKit History exists due to a state management flaw and improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to disclose sensitive information from the file system. (CVE-2015-1155)
- A flaw exists in WebKit Page Loading due to improper handling of rel attributes in anchor elements that allows target objects to get unauthorized access to link objects. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to spoof the user interface.
(CVE-2015-1156)

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Safari 6.2.6 / 7.1.6 / 8.0.6 or later.
