Apple Xcode < 6.0.1 (Mac OS X)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 77863
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 affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


The remote Mac OS X host has a version of Apple Xcode prior to 6.0.1 installed. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the bundled Subversion component. The 'get_resource' function in 'repos.c' in the 'mod_dav_svn' module allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service when the 'SVNListParentPath' option is enabled.


Upgrade to Apple Xcode version 6.0.1 or later, which is available for OS X 10.9.4 (Mavericks) or later.
