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.


An application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


The version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.11.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the HT212319 advisory.

- In FreeBSD 12.1-STABLE before r364644, 11.4-STABLE before r364651, 12.1-RELEASE before p9, 11.4-RELEASE before p3, and 11.3-RELEASE before p13, improper handling in the kernel causes a use-after-free bug by sending large user messages from multiple threads on the same SCTP socket. The use-after-free situation may result in unintended kernel behaviour including a kernel panic. (CVE-2020-7463)

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


Upgrade to Apple iTunes version 12.11.3 or later.
