The remote host is missing a Mac OS X update which fixes a security issue.


The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.3 which does not have the security update 2007-006 applied.

This update fixes security flaws in WebKit and WebCore which might allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

To execute arbitrary code, an attacker would need to lure a user of the remote host into visiting a malicious website containing a specially malformed html file which would trigger a buffer overflow.
