Apple iTunes < 12.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities (macOS) (credentialed check)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 100027
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

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

Description

The version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X 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)

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 iTunes version 12.6 or later.
