New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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.
