macOS < 10.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 93685
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.

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a macOS update that fixes multiple security vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X that is prior to 10.10.5, 10.11.x prior to 10.11.6, or is not macOS 10.12. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache
- apache_mod_php
- Apple HSSPI Support
- AppleEFIRuntime
- AppleMobileFileIntegrity
- AppleUCC
- Application Firewall
- ATS
- Audio
- Bluetooth
- cd9660
- CFNetwork
- CommonCrypto
- CoreCrypto
- CoreDisplay
- curl
- Date & Time Pref Pane
- DiskArbitration
- File Bookmark
- FontParser
- IDS - Connectivity
- ImageIO
- Intel Graphics Driver
- IOAcceleratorFamily
- IOThunderboltFamily
- Kerberos v5 PAM module
- Kernel
- libarchive
- libxml2
- libxpc
- libxslt
- mDNSResponder
- NSSecureTextField
- Perl
- S2 Camera
- Security
- Terminal
- WindowServer

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

Solution

Upgrade to macOS version 10.12 or later.
