Apple Xcode < 6.2 beta 3 .git/config Command Execution (Mac OS X) (deprecated)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

This plugin has been deprecated.

Description :

The remote Mac OS X host has a version of Apple Xcode prior to 6.2
beta 3. It is, therefore, affected by a remote command execution
vulnerability when processing git trees in a case-insensitive or
case-normalizing file system. A remote attacker, using a specially
crafted git tree, can overwrite a user's '.git/config' file when the
user clones or checks out a repository, allowing arbitrary command
execution.

This plugin has been deprecated. It detects Xcode installations
vulnerable to CVE-2014-9390, and was created before Apple released a
security update to fix this vulnerability. On March 9, 2015, a
security update for Xcode has been released. The update fixes
multiple vulnerabilities (including CVE-2014-9390). A separate plugin
(ID 81758) has been created to detect that update. That plugin should
be used instead of this one.
