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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running a version of macOS / Mac OS X that is 10.14.x prior to 10.14.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components:

- AppleKeyStore

- CoreAnimation
- FaceTime
- IOKit
- Kernel
- libxpc
- Natural Language Processing
- QuartzCore
- SQLite

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