Critical Nessus Plugin ID 86829

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.9

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.9.5 or 10.10.5 that is missing Security Update 2015-004 or 2015-007. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- Accelerate Framework
- apache_mod_php
- ATS
- Audio
- CFNetwork
- CoreGraphics
- CoreText
- EFI
- FontParser
- Grand Central Dispatch
- ImageIO
- IOAcceleratorFamily
- Kernel
- libarchive
- MCX Application Restrictions
- OpenGL

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

Solution

Install Security Update 2015-004 / 2015-007 or later.
