Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host has an application installed that is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 6.3. It is, therefore, affected by the multiple
vulnerabilities :

- A stack allocation issue in Clang allows an attacker to
bypass stack guards. (BID 73987)

- An integer overflow issue in the Swift simulator leads
to conversions returning unexpected values. An attacker
can exploit this to cause a denial of service or to
possibly execute arbitrary code.
