ID CVE-2017-2402
Summary An issue was discovered in certain Apple products. macOS before 10.12.4 is affected. The issue involves mishandling of profile uninstall actions in the "MCX Client" component when a profile has multiple payloads. It allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by leveraging Active Directory certificate trust that should not have remained.
Vulnerable Configurations
  • Apple Mac OS X 10.12.3
Base: 7.5 (as of 06-04-2017 - 14:53)
  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Signature Spoofing by Key Theft
    An attacker obtains an authoritative or reputable signer's private signature key by theft and then uses this key to forge signatures from the original signer to mislead a victim into performing actions that benefit the attacker.

NASL family MacOS X Local Security Checks
NASL id MACOS_10_12_4.NASL
description The remote host is running a version of macOS that is 10.12.x prior to 10.12.4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in multiple components, some of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these remote code execution vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. The affected components are as follows : - apache - apache_mod_php - AppleGraphicsPowerManagement - AppleRAID - Audio - Bluetooth - Carbon - CoreGraphics - CoreMedia - CoreText - curl - EFI - FinderKit - FontParser - HTTPProtocol - Hypervisor - iBooks - ImageIO - Intel Graphics Driver - IOATAFamily - IOFireWireAVC - IOFireWireFamily - Kernel - Keyboards - libarchive - libc++abi - LibreSSL - MCX Client - Menus - Multi-Touch - OpenSSH - OpenSSL - Printing - python - QuickTime - Security - SecurityFoundation - sudo - System Integrity Protection - tcpdump - tiffutil - WebKit
