critical Nessus Plugin ID 90096
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

- AppleUSBNetworking
- Bluetooth

- dyld
- FontParser
- HTTPProtocol
- Intel Graphics Driver
- IOFireWireFamily

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