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.
