Multiple vulnerabilities in Apple Safari could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition. Updates are available.
Multiple vulnerabilities in the WebKit component of Apple Safari prior to 6.1.3 and 7.0.3 could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (DoS) condition.
The vulnerabilities are due to unspecified memory corruption errors in the WebKit component of the affected software. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by persuading a user to open a malicious, crafted link. An exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause an unexpected termination of the affected browser, resulting in a DoS condition.
