Mac OS X 10.8.x < 10.8.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 69877
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 10.8.x that is prior to 10.8.5. The newer version contains multiple security-related fixes for the following components :

- Apache
- Bind
- Certificate Trust Policy
- CoreGraphics
- ImageIO
- Installer
- IPSec
- Kernel
- Mobile Device Management
- OpenSSL
- PHP
- PostgreSQL
- Power Management
- QuickTime
- Screen Lock
- sudo

This update also addresses an issue in which certain Unicode strings could cause applications to unexpectedly quit.

Note that successful exploitation of the most serious issues could result in arbitrary code execution.

Solution

Upgrade to Mac OS X 10.8.5 or later.
