Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 10.0.2
Description:   Multiple 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 obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Safari Reader does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input [CVE-2016-7650]. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from an arbitrary site and will run in the security context of that 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.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-4692, CVE-2016-7589, CVE-2016-7635, CVE-2016-7652, CVE-2016-7656, CVE-2016-7587, CVE-2016-7610, CVE-2016-7611, CVE-2016-7632, CVE-2016-7639, CVE-2016-7640, CVE-2016-7641, CVE-2016-7642, CVE-2016-7645, CVE-2016-7646, CVE-2016-7648, CVE-2016-7649, CVE-2016-7654].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will obtain portions of process memory on the target system [CVE-2016-4743, CVE-2016-7598].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will obtain potentially sensitive user information on the target system [CVE-2016-7586].


A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a flaw in the handling of JavaScript prompts and obtain potentially sensitive user information on the target system [CVE-2016-7592].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a flaw in the handling of HTTP redirects and obtain potentially sensitive user information on the target system [CVE-2016-7599].


A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a flaw in the handling of blob URLs and obtain potentially sensitive user information on the target system [CVE-2016-7623].

Erling Ellingsen, Alan Cutter, Boris Zbarsky, Adam Klein, Zheng Huang of the Baidu Security Lab (via Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative), an anonymous researcher (via Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative), Tongbo Luo of Palo Alto Networks, Kai Kang of Tencent's Xuanwu Lab (tencent.com), Keen Lab (via Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative), Samuel Gros, Muneaki Nishimura (nishimunea) of Recruit Technologies Co., Ltd., xisigr of Tencent's Xuanwu Lab (tencent.com), and Jeonghoon Shin reported these vulnerabilities.

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 obtain potentially sensitive information on the target 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 (10.0.2).
