iTunes < 4.7.1

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a Mac OS X update that fixes a security
issue.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of iTunes which is older than
version 4.7.1. The remote version of this software is vulnerable
to a buffer overflow when it parses a malformed playlist file
(.m3u or .pls files). A remote attacker could exploit this by
tricking a user into opening a maliciously crafted file, resulting
in arbitrary code execution.
