Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82713
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 6.3. It is, therefore, affected by the multiple vulnerabilities :
- A stack allocation issue in Clang allows an attacker to bypass stack guards. (BID 73987)
- An integer overflow issue in the Swift simulator leads to conversions returning unexpected values. An attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or to possibly execute arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to Apple Xcode version 6.3, which is available for OS X 10.9.4 (Mavericks) or later.
