macOS 10.12.x < 10.12.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 95917

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: 8.9

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.
