Safari < 6.1.2 / 7.0.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8137
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple security vulnerabilities.


The remote host has Safari installed that is older than 6.1.2 or 7.0.2, which means it is not patched for the following WebKit vulnerabilities :

- Unspecified memory-corruption vulnerabilities that could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code, or cause denial of service. (CVE-2014-1268, CVE-2014-1269, CVE-2014-1270)
- Use-after-free error in the 'ReplaceSelectionCommand' file which can be leveraged to execute arbitrary code, or cause denial of service (CVE-2013-6635)


OS X Mavericks (v10.9) users should upgrade to 10.9.2, which includes the Safari 7.0.2 update. All others should upgrade to Safari 6.1.2 or later.
