Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apple products, the most severe of which could allow for privilege escalation.  Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.

The risk for government entities is:

  • Large and medium government entities: High
  • Small government entities: Medium
  • Systems Affected
