CWE ID 269


CVE-2024-27301 is a vulnerability affecting Support App, an open-source application used for managing Apple devices. The vulnerability allows an attacker to exploit a flaw in the postinstall installer script, which executes arbitrary code as root.

The issue has been addressed in version 2.5.1 Rev 2 of the app, and users are advised to upgrade to mitigate the vulnerability. No known workarounds exist for this vulnerability. The base severity is rated as HIGH, with a CVSS score of 7.3, indicating significant potential danger to organizations that use Support App if left unremediated.
