Synopsis

A web browser installed on the remote Mac OS X or macOS 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 10.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in WebKit :

- An unspecified flaw exists in state management due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted web content, to disclose sensitive user information. (CVE-2016-4613)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via specially crafted web content, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4666, CVE-2016-4677, CVE-2016-7578)

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Safari version 10.0.1 or later.
