Mac OS X : Apple Safari < 9.0.1 Multiple RCE

medium Nessus Plugin ID 86790


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


The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote host is prior to 9.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple memory corruption issues in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a crafted website, to execute arbitrary code or possibly cause a denial of service.


Upgrade to Apple Safari version 9.0.1 or later.
