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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote host is missing a Mac OS X update that fixes multiple security vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.10.5 or 10.11.6 that is missing a security update. It is therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the ssl_parse_clienthello_tlsext() function within file ssl/t1_lib.c when handling oversize OCSP Status Request extensions from clients. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause memory exhaustion in a process linked with the library. (CVE-2016-6304)
- A memory corruption issue exists in Bluetooth due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with kernel level privileges. (CVE-2016-7596)
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the CoreCapture component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-7604)
SolutionInstall Security Update 2016-007 (OS X 10.10.5) / 2016-003 (OS X 10.11.6) or later.
