Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Apple Safari. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2013-1009, CVE-2013-1023]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user. Apple and the Google Chrome Security Team (Inferno) each reported one vulnerability.

A remote user can create 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 security context of an arbitrary site [CVE-2013-1012]. 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. Subodh Iyengar and Erling Ellingsen of Facebook reported this vulnerability.

The copying and pasting of specially crafted HTML may permit cross-site scripting attacks [CVE-2013-0926]. Aditya Gupta, Subho Halder, and Dev Kar of xys3c (xysec.com) reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can create 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 security context of an arbitrary site [CVE-2013-1013]. Sam Power of Pentest Limited reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with an arbitrary 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:   The vendor has issued a fix (6.0.5).
