Synopsis

An application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.

Description

The Mono Framework application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is missing security update KB4019460. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the libjpeg and libjpeg-turbo libraries of Mono Framework. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted JPEG image, to disclose potentially sensitive information from uninitialized memory.

Solution

Install security update KB4019460.
