DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Apple Safari for Mac
OS X, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct
cross-site scripting and spoofing attacks, disclose sensitive
information, bypass certain security restrictions, and compromise a
user's system.

1) An error when handling "feed:" URLs can be exploited to conduct
cross-site scripting attacks.

2) An access control error within the handling of the "feed:" URLs
can be exploited to upload arbitrary files to a server by tricking
the user to visiting a malicious site.

3) An error within the autocomplete feature can be exploited to
bypass the attribute and autocomplete passwords.

4) An error when handling the HTTP "Content-Disposition" header can
be exploited to open an attachment without showing the "Open" dialog
prompt and conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

5) Multiple errors exist due to a bundled vulnerable version of
WebKit.

SA47231
SA47694
SA47938
SA48016
SA48265
SA48512

SA48732
SA48992

6) Multiple errors in the WebKit component can be exploited to
execute arbitrary code.

7) A cross-origin error in the WebKit component when handling drag
and drop events can be exploited to bypass the same-origin policy and
disclose certain text by tricking the user into visiting a malicious
website.

8) A cross-origin error in the WebKit component when handling drag
and drop events can be exploited to bypass the same-origin policy and
disclose certain files by tricking the user into visiting a malicious
website.

9) A cross-origin error in the WebKit component when handling CSS
property values can be exploited to bypass the same-origin policy and
disclose certain information by tricking the user into visiting a
malicious website.

10) An error exists within the cross-origin policy when parenting
pop-up windows.

For more information:
SA48732 (#8)

11) A cross-origin error can be exploited to disclose the iFrame
fragment ID.

For more information:

feature can be exploited to spoof a URL containing look-alike
characters and trick a user into visiting a malicious website.

For more information:
SA48377 (#1)

13) An error within the WebKit component when handling drag and drop
events can be exploited to disclose filesystem path of certain
files.

14) A canonicalization error within the handling of URLs can be
exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks via a specially
crafted "location.href" property.

15) An error when handling WebSockets can be exploited to conduct
HTTP request splitting attacks.

16) An error within the history handling can be exploited to spoof
the URL bar.

For more information:
SA46594 (#1)

17) An error exists within the WebProcess and can be exploited to
bypass the sandbox restrictions.

18) An error when handling SVG images can be exploited to disclose
the contents of arbitrary memory locations.
