Mac OS X Multiple Vulnerabilities (Security Update 2015-003)

High Nessus Plugin ID 81977


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 10.10.2 that is missing Security Update 2015-003. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A type confusion flaw exists in how IOSurface handles serialized objects, which an attacker can use to execute arbitrary code with system privileges. (CVE-2015-1061)

- Multiple buffer overflows exist due to iCloud Keychain improperly validating user-supplied input. A remote, man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, via altering the client-server data stream during keychain recovery, to cause a denial of service condition or to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1065)


Install Security Update 2015-003 or later.
