Description

The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is earlier than 4.0.3. As such, it is potentially affected by several issues :

  • A vulnerability in WebKit's parsing of floating point numbers may allow for remote code execution. (CVE-2009-2195)

  • A vulnerability in Safari may allow a malicious website to be promoted in Safari's Top Sites. (CVE-2009-2196)

  • A vulnerability in how WebKit renders a URL with look- alike characters could be used to masquerade a website. (CVE-2009-2199)

  • A vulnerability in WebKit may lead to the disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2009-2200)
