macOS < 10.13 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 103598
New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a macOS update that fixes multiple security vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X that is prior to 10.10.5, 10.11.x prior to 10.11.6, 10.12.x prior to 10.12.6, or is not macOS 10.13. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache
- AppSandbox
- AppleScript
- Application Firewall
- ATS
- Audio
- CFNetwork
- CFNetwork Proxies
- CFString
- Captive Network Assistant
- CoreAudio
- CoreText
- DesktopServices

- fsck_msdos
- HFS
- Heimdal
- HelpViewer
- IOFireWireFamily
- ImageIO
- Installer
- Kernel
- kext tools
- libarchive
- libc
- libexpat
- Mail
- Mail Drafts
- ntp
- Open Scripting Architecture
- PCRE
- Postfix
- Quick Look
- QuickTime
- Remote Management
- SQLite
- Sandbox
- Screen Lock
- Security
- Spotlight
- WebKit
- zlib

Note that successful exploitation of the most serious issues can result in arbitrary code execution.

Solution

Upgrade to macOS version 10.13 or later.
