Safari < 10.1.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700117

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Safari prior to 10.1.1 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the handling of RenderElement objects. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the handling of RenderLayer objects. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the handling of RenderInline objects. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in the Safari history menu. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can cause an application denial of service.
- A flaw exists related to an inconsistent user interface. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to spoof the address bar.
- A logic flaw exists that allows a UXSS attack. The issue is triggered when handling container nodes. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to create a specially crafted web page that will execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and any website.
- A flaw exists related to an inconsistent user interface. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to spoof the address bar.

This product is also affected by vulnerabilities found in the following components:
