KB4019460: Security Update for the libjpeg Information Disclosure Vulnerability for Mono Framework (macOS)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 99310
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.


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


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.
