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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote host is missing a Mac OS X update that fixes a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.9.5 or 10.10.5 that is missing Security Update 2016-001. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to a type confusion flaw in the bundled libxslt component that is triggered when handling invalid values. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
SolutionInstall Security Update 2016-001 or later.
