CVE-2011-0259

HIGH
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

CoreFoundation, as used in Apple iTunes before 10.5, does not properly perform string tokenization, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via unspecified vectors.
