Published: 2018-06-04 08:38:42
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

This host is installed with 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, - A logic issue in validation. - A memory corruption issue in memory handling. - An injection issue in input validation. - A race condition in locking. - A validation issue in input sanitization. - A type confusion issue in memory handling. - A buffer overflow issue in bounds checking. - A device configuration issue in configuration. - An out-of-bounds read issue leading to the disclosure of kernel memory. - A sandbox issue in handling of microphone access. - An issue in parsing entitlement plists. - An issue in the handling of S-MIME certificaties. - An authorization issue in state management. - An issue in the handling of encrypted Mail. - An input validation issue. - A memory corruption vulnerability in improved locking. - An information disclosure issue in Accessibility Framework. - A validation issue existed in the handling of text.

Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to gain elevated privileges, execute arbitrary code, conduct impersonation attacks, read restricted memory, modify the EFI flash memory region, circumvent sandbox restrictions, read a persistent account identifier, read kernel memory, view sensitive user information, exfiltrate the contents of S/MIME- encrypted e-mail, spoof password prompts in iBooks and cause denial of service.

Affected Versions:
Apple Mac OS X versions, 10.13.x through 10.13.4

Upgrade to Apple Mac OS X 10.13.5 or later. Please see the references for more information.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

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".
