Mac OS X : Apple Safari < 10.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 93721

Synopsis

A web browser installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X or macOS host is prior to 10.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in WebKit that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or execute arbitrary code via specially a crafted website. (CVE-2016-4611, CVE-2016-4729, CVE-2016-4730, CVE-2016-4731, CVE-2016-4734, CVE-2016-4735, CVE-2016-4737, CVE-2016-4759, CVE-2016-4762, CVE-2016-4766, CVE-2016-4767, CVE-2016-4768, CVE-2016-4769)

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in the Reader feature due to improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to follow a specially crafted link, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2016-4618)

- A flaw exists in WebKit due to improper handling of error prototypes. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4728)

- Multiple flaws exist in WebKit due to improper state management. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4733, CVE-2016-4765)

- An address bar spoofing vulnerability exists due to a state management flaw related to sessions in tabs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to spoof an address in the address bar. (CVE-2016-4751)

- A flaw exists in WebKit due to improper handling of the location variable. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted website, to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-4758)

- A flaw exists in WebKit that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct DNS rebinding attacks against non-HTTP Safari sessions by leveraging HTTP/0.9 support.
(CVE-2016-4760)

- A flaw exists in WebKit in the WKWebView component due to improper validation of X.509 certificates from HTTPS servers. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, via a crafted certificate, to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-4763)

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Safari version 10.0 or later.
