high Nessus Plugin ID 127054
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 vulnerabilities

Description

The remote host is running a version of macOS / Mac OS X that is 10.14.x prior to 10.14.6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An application may be able to read restricted memory (CVE-2019-8691, CVE-2019-8692, CVE-2019-8693)

- Extracting a zip file containing a symbolic link to an endpoint in an NFS mount that is attacker controlled may bypass Gatekeeper (CVE-2019-8656)

- A remote attacker may be able to cause arbitrary code execution (CVE-2019-8648, CVE-2018-19860, CVE-2019-8661)

- A remote attacker may be able to leak memory (CVE-2019-8646, CVE-2019-8663)

- A remote attacker may be able to cause unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution (CVE-2019-8641, CVE-2019-8660)

- An application may be able to execute arbitrary code with system privileges (CVE-2019-8695, CVE-2019-8697)

- An issue existed in Samba that may allow attackers to perform unauthorized actions by intercepting communications between services (CVE-2018-16860)

- An application may be able to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges (CVE-2019-8694)

- A remote attacker may be able to view sensitive information (CVE-2019-13118)

- An attacker may be able to trigger a use-after-free in an application deserializing an untrusted NSDictionary (CVE-2019-8662)

- Visiting a malicious website may lead to address bar spoofing (CVE-2019-8670)

- The encryption status of a Time Machine backup may be incorrect (CVE-2019-8667)

- Parsing a maliciously crafted office document may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution (CVE-2019-8657)

- Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to universal cross site scripting (CVE-2019-8690, CVE-2019-8649, CVE-2019-8658)

- Processing maliciously crafted web content may lead to arbitrary code execution (CVE-2019-8644, CVE-2019-8666, CVE-2019-8669, CVE-2019-8671, CVE-2019-8672, CVE-2019-8673, CVE-2019-8676, CVE-2019-8677, CVE-2019-8678, CVE-2019-8679, CVE-2019-8680, CVE-2019-8681, CVE-2019-8683, CVE-2019-8684, CVE-2019-8685, CVE-2019-8686, CVE-2019-8687, CVE-2019-8688, CVE-2019-8689)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the operating system's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to macOS version 10.14.6 or later
