Synopsis

The remote host is missing an update for OS X Server that fixes two
security issues.

Description

The remote Mac OS X 10.8 host has a version of OS X Server installed
that is prior to 2.2.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

improper handling of XML parameters. A remote attacker
can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code through
either the Profile Manager or Wiki Server components.
(CVE-2013-0156)

improper handling of JSON data. A remote attacker can
exploit this to execute arbitrary code through the
