Apple iTunes < 11.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities (uncredentialed check)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains an application that is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

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.
(CVE-2014-8842)

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