Synopsis :

The remote device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its banner, the remote Apple TV 2nd generation or later
device is prior to 5.2. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by
several vulnerabilities :

and length passed to the copyin and copyout functions
could allow a user-mode process to directly access
kernel memory if the length is smaller than one page.

- An out-of-bounds read error in the Broadcom BCM4325 /
BCM4329 firmware could allow a remote attacker on the
same Wi-Fi network to cause an unexpected system
termination by sending a specially crafted RSN (802.11i)
information element. (CVE-2012-2619)
