buffer overflow vulnerability.
The remote version of iTunes is older than 8.2. Such versions are
affected by a stack-based buffer overflow that can be triggered
when parsing 'itms:' URLs. If an attacker can trick a user on the
affected host into clicking on a malicious link, he can leverage
this issue to crash the affected application or to execute arbitrary
code on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.
