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 :

- URL spoofing vulnerability due to improper encoding of domain names (CVE-2014-1345)
