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.

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.
