macOS 10.15.x < Catalina Security Update 2021-008 Catalina (HT212981)

high Nessus Plugin ID 156221

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a macOS or Mac OS X security update or supplemental update that fixes multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The remote host is running a version of macOS / Mac OS X that is 10.15.x prior to Catalina Security Update 2021-008 Catalina. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A buffer overflow issue was addressed with improved memory handling. Processing a maliciously crafted USD file may lead to unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2021-30979)

- An out-of-bounds read was addressed with improved input validation. Playing a malicious audio file may lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2021-30958)

- An out-of-bounds write issue was addressed with improved bounds checking. Processing a maliciously crafted USD file may disclose memory contents. (CVE-2021-30929)

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 10.15.7 Catalina Security Update 2021-008 Catalina or later
