Mac OS X 10.7.x < 10.7.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities (BEAST)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 59066

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a Mac OS X update that fixes several security issues.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.7.x that is prior to 10.7.4. The newer version contains numerous security-related fixes for the following components :

- Login Window
- Bluetooth
- curl
- HFS
- Kernel
- libarchive
- libsecurity
- libxml
- LoginUIFramework
- PHP
- Quartz Composer
- QuickTime
- Ruby
- Security Framework
- Time Machine
- X11

Note that this update addresses the recent FileVault password vulnerability, in which user passwords are stored in plaintext to a system-wide debug log if the legacy version of FileVault is used to encrypt user directories after a system upgrade to Lion. Since the patch only limits further exposure, though, we recommend that all users on the system change their passwords if user folders were encrypted using the legacy version of FileVault prior to and after an upgrade to OS X 10.7.

Solution

Upgrade to Mac OS X 10.7.4 or later.
