Apple Xcode < 5.0 (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host has an application installed that is prone to a
man-in-the-middle attack.

Description :

The remote Mac OS X host has Apple Xcode prior to 5.0 installed. It,
therefore, includes a version of git in which the imap-send command
reportedly does not verify that a server hostname matches the domain
name in its X.509 certificate. A man-in-the-middle attacker could
leverage this vulnerability to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary
valid certificate.
