Synopsis

An application installed on remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.9.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the HT209450 advisory:

- Multiple vulnerabilities exist due to input processing flaws in the WebKit component. An attacker may be able to leverage one of these vulnerability, by providing maliciously crafted web content, to execute arbitrary code on the host. (CVE-2019-6212, CVE-2019-6215, CVE-2019-6216, CVE-2019-6217, CVE-2019-6226, CVE-2019-6227, CVE-2019-6233, CVE-2019-6234)

- A universal cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the WebKit component. An attacker may be able to leverage this vulnerability, by providing maliciously crafted web content, to execute arbitrary script code in the security context of any site. (CVE-2019-6229)

- A memory corruption vulnerability exists in the AppleKeyStore component. An attacker may be able to leverage this vulnerability to allow a process to circumvent sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2019-6235)

- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability exists in the Core Media component. An attacker may be able to leverage this vulnerability to allow a malicious application to elevate its privileges. (CVE-2019-6221)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in the SQLite component. An attacker may be able to leverage these vulnerabilities, by executing a malicious SQL query, to execute arbitrary code on the host. (CVE-2018-20346, CVE-2018-20505, CVE-2018-20506)


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