Safari < 10.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9931

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.
