New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X that is 10.9.5 or 10.10.5 and is missing Security Update 2016-002. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache_mod_php
- Kernel
- libxml2
- OpenSSH
- Python
- Tcl

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

Solution
