Synopsis

A web browser installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 10.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A prototype access flaw exists in WebKit when handling exceptions. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted web content, to disclose cross-origin data. (CVE-2017-2350)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in WebKit due to improper validation of certain unspecified input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via specially crafted web content, to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-2354, CVE-2017-2356, CVE-2017-2362, CVE-2017-2366, CVE-2017-2369, CVE-2017-2373)

- An unspecified memory initialization flaw exists in WebKit that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2355)

- An unspecified state management flaw exists that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to spoof the address bar. (CVE-2017-2359)

- Multiple flaws exist in WebKit when handling page loading due to improper validation of certain unspecified input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via specially crafted web content, to disclose cross-origin data. (CVE-2017-2363, CVE-2017-2364)

- A flaw exists in WebKit when handling variables due to improper validation of certain unspecified input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted web content, to disclose cross-origin data. (CVE-2017-2365)

Solution
