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.

SynopsisThe remote host is missing a security update for macOS Server.
DescriptionThe version of macOS Server (formerly known as Mac OS X Server) installed on the remote host is prior to 5.3. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the Apache HTTP server when handling a saturation of partial HTTP requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the daemon. (CVE-2007-6750)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in Action Pack in Ruby on Rails due to improper restrictions on the use of the MIME type cache when handling specially crafted HTTP accept headers. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause the cache to grow indefinitely. (CVE-2016-0751)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the Wiki Server component due to improper checking of unspecified permissions. An unauthenticated, remote can exploit this to enumerate users. (CVE-2017-2382)
SolutionUpgrade to macOS Server version 5.3 or later. Note that macOS Server version 5.3 is available only for macOS 10.12.4 or later.
