Apple Xcode < 7.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 7.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in Apache Subversion in mod_authz_svn due
to a failure to properly restrict anonymous access. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a
crafted path name, to read hidden files. (CVE-2015-3184)

- A flaw exists in Apache Subversion in the
svn_repos_trace_node_locations() function that causes
the first readable path to be returned when it
encounters an unreadable path when following a node's
history. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this to access paths that were intended to be hidden.
(CVE-2015-3187)

- Multiple unspecified memory corruption issues exist in
otool due to improper validation of user-supplied input.
A local attacker can exploit these to cause a denial of
service or to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1765)
