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


The remote host is running a version of macOS / Mac OS X that is 10.14.x prior to 10.14.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components :

- Airport
- Carbon Core
- Disk Images
- Intel Graphics Driver

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


Upgrade to macOS version 10.14.2 or later.
