High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8870

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a critical Safari patch update.

Description

The version of Safari installed on the remote host is prior to 6.2.6 / 7.1.6 / 8.0.6 and is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to cause a denial of service condition or to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1152, CVE-2015-1153, and CVE-2015-1154)
- An information disclosure vulnerability in WebKit History exists due to a state management flaw and improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to disclose sensitive information from the file system. (CVE-2015-1155)
- A flaw exists in WebKit Page Loading due to improper handling of rel attributes in anchor elements that allows target objects to get unauthorized access to link objects. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page, to spoof the user interface. (CVE-2015-1156)

Solution

Upgrade to Safari 6.2.6 / 7.1.6 / 8.0.6 or later.
