Description

WebKit, as used in Google Chrome before 10.0.648.204 and Apple Safari before 5.0.6, does not properly handle node parentage, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (DOM tree corruption), conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-5_0_6
  • apple-safari-upgrade-5_1
  • apple-safari-windows-uninstall

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
