Apple Xcode < 5.0 (Mac OS X)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 70093
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.


The remote host has an application installed that is prone to a man-in-the-middle attack.


The remote Mac OS X host has Apple Xcode prior to 5.0 installed. It, therefore, includes a version of git in which the imap-send command reportedly does not verify that a server hostname matches the domain name in its X.509 certificate. A man-in-the-middle attacker could leverage this vulnerability to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.


Upgrade to Apple Xcode version 5.0 or later, available for OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4 or later.
