high Nessus Plugin ID 105080
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.

VPR Score: 7.7


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.
