Summary:
This host is running Apple Mac OS X and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws exists due to - An error in Bluetooth HCI interface. - An error in IOAcceleratorFamily. - An error in Disk Images component. - The System Integrity Protection feature mishandles union mounts. - The Keychain Access improperly interacts with Keychain Agent. - The Kext tools mishandles kernel-extension loading. - Error in in ASN.1 decode, kernel loader in EF, IOThunderboltFamily, in File Bookmark component. - The Multiple errors in Intel Graphics Driver component. - The Use-after-free error in Hypervisor. - A privilege issue existed in handling union mounts. - Multiple vulnerabilities existed in LibreSSL. - An input validation issue existed in OpenLDAP. - An issue existed in how Keychain Access interacted with Keychain Agent.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
