The remote host contains an application that is affected by multiple
The version of Apple iTunes running on the remote host is prior to
version 11.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists in the CFNetwork HTTPProtocol due to a
failure to properly ensure that a Set-Cookie HTTP header
is complete before interpreting the header's value. A
man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to bypass
security settings by closing the connection before the
security settings are sent, resulting in the disclosure
of sensitive information. (CVE-2014-1296)
- A memory corruption issue exists due to improper
validation of user-supplied input when handling MP4
files. An attacker can exploit this, by convincing a
user to open a specially crafted MP4 file, to corrupt
memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
