3) A buffer overflow error exists within ColorSync when processing images with a specially crafted embedded ICC profile. This can be exploited to e.g. execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into viewing a malicious image.
4) A vulnerability exists in CUPS, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
6) Some vulnerabilities in MySQL can be exploited by malicious, local users to manipulate certain data and bypass certain security restrictions, by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions, and by malicious people to cause a DoS and compromise a vulnerable system.
7) An unspecified error within the local IPC component of configd's EAPOLController plugin can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code with escalated privileges.
8) A weakness in the Postfix configuration can be exploited by malicious people to send direct emails to users or otherwise use the SMTP protocol during a one minute time frame after e.g. postfix was used by a command line application.
9) An unspecified error exists within PSNormalizer when processing bounding box comments. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code by e.g. tricking a user into opening a specially crafted PostScript document.
10) A signedness error exists within QuickLook when processing columns in Microsoft Excel files. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code by e.g. tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Microsoft Excel file.
11) An implementation error causes rlogind to apply hosts.equiv configuration entries to root, although the manpage states that this is not the case. This results in unexpected behavior and may allow intended security restrictions to be bypassed.
12) The ScriptEditor application creates temporary files in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to perform certain actions (e.g. overwrite arbitrary files) with the privileges of another user.
13) Some vulnerabilities in Apache Tomcat can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions, and by malicious people to disclose system or potentially sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, manipulate data, and bypass certain security restrictions.
