New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote host is missing a Mac OS X update that fixes multiple security issues.


The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X that is older than 10.9.2. The newer version contains numerous security-related fixes for the following components :

- Apache


- Certificate Trust Policy

- CoreAnimation

- CoreText

- curl

- Data Security

- Date and Time

- File Bookmark

- Finder

- ImageIO

- NVIDIA Drivers


- QuickLook

- QuickTime

An attacker could leverage the most serious of these issues to execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to OS X 10.9.2 or higher.
