Apple iTunes < 12.6.1 WebKit Memory Corruption RCE (credentialed check)
High Nessus Plugin ID 100300
SynopsisAn application installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.6.1. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to memory corruption caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open maliciously crafted web content, to execute arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apple iTunes version 12.6.1 or later.
