Critical Nessus Plugin ID 94935

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

An IDE application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Apple Xcode installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 8.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities in the Node.js component of the Xcode Server. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to Apple Xcode version 8.1 or later.
