Apple iTunes < 11.2 CFNetwork HTTPProtocol Information Disclosure (uncredentialed check)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains an application that is affected by an
information disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Apple iTunes on the remote host is prior to version
11.2. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure
vulnerability due to a flaw in the CFNetwork HTTPProtocol when
'Set-Cookie' HTTP headers are processed. By closing the TCP connection
during the transmission of a header, a remote man-in-the-middle
attacker can exploit this flaw to bypass security settings and acquire
the credentials to arbitrary websites.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
