Synopsis :

The remote host contains a multimedia application that has multiple
buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of iTunes installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
earlier than 10.6.3 and is, therefore, affected by stack and heap
based buffer overflow vulnerabilities. The application does not
properly handle 'm3u' playlist files. This error can cause the
application to crash or possibly allow arbitrary code execution.
