Apple iTunes < 12.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities (uncredentialed check)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 100026
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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

Synopsis

An application running on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Apple iTunes running on the remote host is prior to 12.6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple vulnerabilities exist in the expat component, the most severe of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2009-3270, CVE-2009-3560, CVE-2009-3720, CVE-2012-1147, CVE-2012-1148, CVE-2012-6702, CVE-2015-1283, CVE-2016-0718, CVE-2016-4472, CVE-2016-5300)

- Multiple vulnerabilities exist in the SQLite component, the most severe of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2013-7443, CVE-2015-3414, CVE-2015-3415, CVE-2015-3416, CVE-2015-3717, CVE-2015-6607, CVE-2016-6153)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the APNs server component due to client certificates being transmitted in cleartext. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-2383)

- A use-after-free error exists in the WebKit component due to improper handling of RenderBox objects. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2463)

- Multiple universal cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities exist in the WebKit component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted web page, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2017-2479, CVE-2017-2480, CVE-2017-2493)

- An integer overflow condition exists in the libxslt component in the xsltAddTextString() function in transform.c due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause an out-of-bounds write, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5029)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apple iTunes version 12.6 or later.
