medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8264
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host has Safari installed that is older than 6.1.4 or 7.0.4, and is thus unpatched for the following WebKit vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues within WebKit, which were addressed through improved memory handling (CVE-2013-2875, CVE-2013-2927, CVE-2014-1323, CVE-2014-1324, CVE-2014-1326, CVE-2014-1327, CVE-2014-1329, CVE-2014-1330, CVE-2014-1331, CVE-2014-1333, CVE-2014-1334, CVE-2014-1335, CVE-2014-1336, CVE-2014-1337, CVE-2014-1338, CVE-2014-1339, CVE-2014-1341, CVE-2014-1342, CVE-2014-1343, CVE-2014-1344, CVE-2014-1731)
- An issue with the way unicode characters in the URL are handled could result in bypassing the browser's origin check (CVE-2014-1346)

Solution

Upgrade to Safari 7.0.4 or later. If version 7.0.x is not available, version 6.1.4 is also patched for these issues.
