iTunes < 11.2.1 User Directory Insecure Permissions Vulnerability (uncredentialed check)

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


Synopsis :

The remote host contains an application that is affected by an
insecure permissions vulnerability.

Description :

The version of iTunes on the remote host is prior to version 11.2.1.
It is, therefore, affected by an insecure permissions vulnerability.

An insecure permissions vulnerability exists when the '/Users' and
'/Users/Shared' directories have world-writable permissions. This can
allow a local attacker to manipulate the contents or gain escalated
privileges.

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