Safari < 10.0.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9864

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Safari prior to 10.0.2 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that allows a universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) attack. This flaw exists because the Safari Reader feature does not properly validate certain input before returning it to users. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and any website.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can potentially disclose memory contents.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can potentially disclose certain user information.
- A use-after-free error exists in the handling of 'RenderObject' 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 'HTMLLabelElement' objects. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists that is triggered when handling JavaScript prompts. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can disclose unspecified user information.
- A flaw exists related to use of uninitialized memory. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can potentially disclose memory contents.
- A flaw exists that is triggered when handling HTTP redirects. With specially crafted web contents, a context-dependent attacker can disclose unspecified user information.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to Safari version 10.0.2 or later.
