  • CFNetwork HTTPProtocol

    Available for: OS X Lion v10.7.5, OS X Lion Server v10.7.5, OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.5, and OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

    Impact: An attacker in a privileged network position can obtain web site credentials

    Description: Set-Cookie HTTP headers would be processed even if the connection closed before the header line was complete. An attacker could strip security settings from the cookie by forcing the connection to close before the security settings were sent, and then obtain the value of the unprotected cookie. This issue was addressed by ignoring incomplete HTTP header lines.

    CVE-ID

    CVE-2013-4164

  • Security - Secure Transport

    Available for: OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.5 and OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

    Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture data or change the operations performed in sessions protected by SSL

    Description: In a 'triple handshake' attack, it was possible for an attacker to establish two connections which had the same encryption keys and handshake, insert the attacker's data in one connection, and renegotiate so that the connections may be forwarded to each other. To prevent attacks based on this scenario, Secure Transport was changed so that, by default, a renegotiation must present the same server certificate as was presented in the original connection. This issue does not affect Mac OS X 10.7 systems and earlier.
