The Mac OS X host has a remote management application that is
potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
According to its version, the Apple Remote Desktop install on the
remote host is earlier than 3.5.4 / 3.7. As such, it is potentially
affected the following vulnerabilities :
- A format string vulnerability exists in Remote
Desktop's handling of a VNC username. (CVE-2013-5135)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists because
Remote Desktop may use password authentication without
warning that the connection would be encrypted if a
third-party VNC server supports certain authentication
types. Note that this does not affect installs of
version 3.5.x or earlier. (CVE_2013-5136)
- An authentication bypass vulnerability exists due to a
flaw in the full-screen feature that is triggered when
handling text entered in the dialog box upon recovering
from sleep mode with a remote connection alive. A local
attacker can exploit this to bypass intended access
