Description

The remote host is running a version of Mac OS X 10.10.5 or 10.11.6 that is missing a security update. It is therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the Kernel component :

  • An unspecified flaw exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to run a specially crafted application, to disclose kernel memory contents. (CVE-2016-4655)

  • An unspecified flaw exists due to improper validation of certain input. An attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to run a specially crafted application, to execute arbitrary code with kernel level privileges. (CVE-2016-4656)
