Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Apple Safari. A remote user can conduct cross-domain scripting attacks. Apple iPhone is affected.

A remote user can create a specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser in the context of another domain or site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

An event handler can execute a script in the security context of the next web page that is loaded in its window or frame [CVE-2009-1684]. Michal Zalewski of Google Inc. reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can overwrite the 'document.implementation' property of an embedded or parent document served from a different security zone [CVE-2009-1685]. Dean McNamee of Google Inc. reported this vulnerability.

WebKit does not properly determine the security context associated with scripts [CVE-2009-1688]. Adam Barth of UC Berkeley and Collin Jackson of Stanford University reported this vulnerability.

A form submitted to 'about:blank' can synchronously replace the target document's security context, allowing currently-executing scripts to run in the new security context [CVE-2009-1689]. Adam Barth of UC Berkeley and Collin Jackson of Stanford University reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can modify standard JavaScript prototypes of web sites served from a different domain [CVE-2009-1691].

The contents of a frame can be accessed by an HTML document after a page transition has occurred [CVE-2009-1695]. Feng Qian of Google Inc. reported this vulnerability.

A web site can bypass the same-origin policy by issuing an XMLHttpRequest that does not contain an HTTP Host header [CVE-2009-1697]. Per von Zweigbergk reported this vulnerability.

The handling of Location and History objects may permit cross-site scripting attacks [CVE-2009-1702]. Adam Barth and Joel Weinberger of UC Berkeley reported this vulnerability.

A flaw in Web Inspector in the processing of HTML attributes allows a page being inspected to run injected script with elevated privileges and can read the target user's file system [CVE-2009-1714]. Pengsu Cheng of Wuhan University reported this vulnerability.

A flaw in Web Inspector allows a page being inspected to run injected script with elevated privileges and can read the target user's file system [CVE-2009-1715]. Collin Jackson of Stanford University and Adam Barth of UC Berkeley reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with a target site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   Apple has issued a fix for iPhone OS (3.0), which is affected by some of these vulnerabilities.
