Safari < 10.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9931
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 has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Safari prior to 10.0.3 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A prototype access flaw exists that is triggered when handling exceptions. With specially crafted web content, a context-dependent attacker may exfiltrate cross-origin data. (CVE-2017-2350)
- A type confusion flaw exists that is triggered as input is not properly validated when handling SearchInputType objects. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2354)
- An unspecified memory initialization flaw exists that may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided. (CVE-2017-2355)
- A flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2356)
- An unspecified state management flaw exists that may allow a context-dependent attacker to spoof the address bar. No further details have been provided. (CVE-2017-2359)
- A flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2362, CVE-2017-2366, CVE-2017-2369)
- A flaw exists that is triggered as input is not properly validated when handling page loading. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to exfiltrate cross-origin data. (CVE-2017-2363, CVE-2017-2364, CVE-2017-2365, CVE-2017-2373)

Solution

Upgrade to Safari version 10.0.3 or later.
