This host is running Apple Mac OS X and
is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.
Multiple flaws are due to:
- The flaw in Spotlight that is triggered as the status of Mails
'load remote content in messages' setting is not properly checked

crafted application to control the size of a write to kernel memory.

attackers to determine the IP address of the recipient of an email, a local
attacker to gain elevated privileges.
