high Nessus Plugin ID 105080
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X that is 10.13.x prior to 10.13.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache
- curl
- Directory Utility
- IOAcceleratorFamily
- IOKit
- Intel Graphics Driver
- Kernel
- Mail
- Mail Drafts
- OpenSSL
- Screen Sharing Server

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


Upgrade to macOS version 10.13.2 or later.
