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 7.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist
due to a flaw in the otools component that is
triggered when handling Mach-O files. A remote
attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7049, CVE-2015-7057)

- A flaw exists in the IDE SCM due to the .gitignore
directive not being honored. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive
information. (CVE-2015-7056)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to a
flaw in git-remote-ext that is triggered when handling
a specially crafted URL. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-7082)
