macOS 12.x < 12.3.1 (HT213220)

high Nessus Plugin ID 159571

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 12.x prior to 12.3.1 Monterey. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An out-of-bounds read issue may lead to the disclosure of kernel memory and was addressed with improved input validation. (CVE-2022-22674)

- An out-of-bounds write issue was addressed with improved bounds checking. (CVE-2022-22675)

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 12.3.1 or later.
