An IDE application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 9.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities in the git, Id64, and subversion components.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to cause execution of arbitrary code.
