Apple Xcode < 7.1 (Mac OS X)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 86570


The remote Mac OS X host has an application installed that is affected by a vulnerability due to unexpected type conversions.


The version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 7.1. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability in Swift-based programs due to unexpected values being returned for certain type conversions. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by manipulating return values, to circumvent controls in program logic.


Upgrade to Apple Xcode version 7.1, which is available for OS X version 10.10.5 (Yosemite) or later.
