critical Nessus Plugin ID 92497


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


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 2016-004. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache_mod_php (affects 10.10.5 only)
- CoreGraphics
- ImageIO
- libxml2
- libxslt

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


Install Security Update 2016-004 or later.
