Description

WebKit, as used in Apple Safari before 6.1.3 and 7.x before 7.0.3, does not properly validate WebProcess IPC messages, which allows remote attackers to bypass a sandbox protection mechanism and read arbitrary files by leveraging WebProcess access.

Solution(s)

  • apple-safari-upgrade-6_1_3
  • apple-safari-upgrade-7_0_3
  • apple-safari-windows-uninstall
