critical Nessus Plugin ID 99134
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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 10.12.4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in multiple components, some of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these remote code execution vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. The affected components are as follows :

- apache
- apache_mod_php
- AppleGraphicsPowerManagement
- AppleRAID
- Audio
- Bluetooth
- Carbon
- CoreGraphics
- CoreMedia
- CoreText
- curl
- FinderKit
- FontParser
- HTTPProtocol
- Hypervisor
- iBooks
- ImageIO
- Intel Graphics Driver
- IOATAFamily
- IOFireWireAVC
- IOFireWireFamily
- Kernel
- Keyboards
- libarchive
- libc++abi
- LibreSSL
- MCX Client
- Menus
- Multi-Touch
- OpenSSH
- OpenSSL
- Printing
- python
- QuickTime
- Security
- SecurityFoundation
- sudo
- System Integrity Protection
- tcpdump
- tiffutil
- WebKit


Upgrade to macOS version 10.12.4 or later.
