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
SynopsisThe remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 9.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a failure to completely delete a user's browser history when using the 'Clear History and Website Data' action.
An attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-1849)
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker, via a specially crafted website, can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1854, CVE-2016-1855, CVE-2016-1856, CVE-2016-1857, CVE-2016-1859)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in WebKit due to insufficient taint tracking. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted SVG image, to disclose information from another website.
SolutionUpgrade to Apple Safari version 9.1.1 or later.
