New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.8.5 or 10.9.5 that is missing Security Update 2015-006. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache
- apache_mod_php
- CoreText
- FontParser
- Libinfo
- libxml2
- OpenSSL
- perl
- PostgreSQL
- QL Office
- Quartz Composer Framework
- QuickTime 7
- SceneKit

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


Install Security Update 2015-006 or later.
