New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

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 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 9.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple memory corruption issues in WebKit due to improper memory handling. 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 9.0.2 or later.
