Apple Xcode < 7.3.1 Multiple RCE (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 remote code execution vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 7.3.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple remote code
execution vulnerabilities in the bundled version of Git due to
overflow conditions in the path_name() function in revision.c that are
triggered when pushing or cloning a repository with a large filename
or containing a large number of nested trees. A remote attacker can
exploit these issues to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code.
