DESCRIPTION:
A weakness and multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Apple
Safari, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain
security restrictions, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, disclose
potentially sensitive information, and compromise a user's system.

1) An input sanitation error within the handling of
"safari-extension://" URLs can be exploited to e.g. execute arbitrary
JavaScript code within the context of installed Safari extensions and
disclose local files via directory traversal attacks.

2) A policy error within the handling of "file://" URLs can be
exploited to execute arbitrary local applications.

Note: This vulnerability does not affect the Windows platform.

3) An error within the handling of SSL certificates can be exploited
to trigger an access of uninitialised memory and potentially execute
arbitrary code.

Note: This vulnerability does not affect OS X Lion or the Windows
platform.

4) Multiple vulnerabilities in WebKit can be exploited by malicious
people to cause a crash or compromise a user's system.

For more information:
SA44375
SA45097
SA45498
SA46049
SA46171
SA46339

5) An error exists within the handling of the beforeload event.

For more information see vulnerability #22 in:
SA45498

6) An error exists within the handling of the window.open method.

For more information see vulnerability #28 in:
SA45498

7) An error exists within the handling of the document.documentURI
property.

For more information see vulnerability #29 in:
SA45498

8) A cross-origin error exists within the handling of inactive DOM
windows, which can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.

9) A logic error within the handling of cookies in the Private
Browsing mode can lead to cookies being stored although the "Block
cookies" option is set to "Always".

Note: This does not affect the Windows platform.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 5.1.1.
