New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.8, 10.9, or 10.10 that does not have Security Update 2015-002 applied. This update contains several security-related fixes for the following components :

- iCloud Keychain
- IOAcceleratorFamily
- IOSurface
- mach_port_kobject kernel interface
- Secure Transport

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