Description
 
Apple Mac OS X contains multiple vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to bypass security protections, gain access to sensitive information, or execute arbitrary code on a targeted system.

An attacker could bypass local security controls on vulnerable systems to gain unauthorized access to the system or by convincing users to open malicious websites, documents, or images.
