New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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.
