macOS 10.12.x < 10.12.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 95917

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running a version of macOS that is 10.12.x prior to 10.12.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache_mod_php
- AppleGraphicsPowerManagement
- Assets
- Audio
- Bluetooth
- CoreCapture
- CoreFoundation
- CoreGraphics
- CoreMedia External Displays
- CoreMedia Playback
- CoreStorage
- CoreText
- curl
- Directory Services
- Disk Images
- FontParser
- Foundation
- Grapher
- ICU
- ImageIO
- Intel Graphics Driver
- IOFireWireFamily
- IOAcceleratorFamily
- IOHIDFamily
- IOKit
- IOSurface
- Kernel
- kext tools
- libarchive
- LibreSSL
- OpenLDAP
- OpenPAM
- OpenSSL
- Power Management
- Security
- syslog
- WiFi
- xar

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

Furthermore, CVE-2016-6304, CVE-2016-7596, and CVE-2016-7604 also affect Mac OS X versions 10.10.5 and 10.11.6. However, this plugin does not check those versions.

Solution

Upgrade to macOS version 10.12.2 or later.
