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


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


The remote host is running a version of macOS that is 10.12.x prior to 10.12.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the following components :

- apache_mod_php
- Bluetooth
- Graphics Drivers
- Help Viewer
- IOAudioFamily
- Kernel
- libarchive
- Vim
- WebKit

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


Upgrade to macOS version 10.12.3 or later.
