Apple Safari Web Script Execution Vulnerabilities - June09

Published: 2009-06-17 15:54:48
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:
Windows Registry

Successful exploitation will allow attacker to execute arbitrary web script in an https site's context and spoof an arbitrary https site by letting a browser obtain a valid certificate.

Affected Versions:
Safari version prior to 3.2.2 on Windows.

Technical Details:
- Error in processes a '3xx' HTTP CONNECT response before a successful SSL handshake, which can be exploited by modifying the CONNECT response to specify a 302 redirect to an arbitrary https web site. - Error exists while the HTTP Host header to determine the context of a document provided in a '4xx' or '5xx' CONNECT response from a proxy server, which can be exploited by modifying this CONNECT response, aka an 'SSL tampering' attack. - Error is caused when application does not require a cached certificate before displaying a lock icon for an https web site, while sending the browser a crafted '4xx' or '5xx' CONNECT response page for an https request sent through a proxy server. - Detects http content in https web pages only when the top-level frame uses https. This can be exploited by modifying an http page to include an https iframe that references a script file on an http site, related to 'HTTP-Intended-but-HTTPS-Loadable (HPIHSL) pages.'

This host has Safari browser installed and is prone to Web Script Execution vulnerabilities.

Upgrade to Safari version 5.0 or later.

Solution Type:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
