Mac OS X : Apple Safari < 9.0.2 Multiple RCE

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87370
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Safari version 9.0.2 or later.
