New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X that is 10.12.x prior to macOS 10.12.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- AppleMobileFileIntegrity
- AppleSMC
- CFNetwork Proxies
- CoreGraphics
- FaceTime
- FontParser
- IDS - Connectivity
- Kernel
- libarchive
- libxpc
- ntfs
- Security
- Thunderbolt

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


Upgrade to macOS version 10.12.1 or later.
