New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.5


The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a remote code execution flaw.


The remote host is running Apple iTunes, a popular media player.

The remote version of iTunes is vulnerable to an integer overflow when it parses a specially crafted AAC file. By tricking a user into opening such a file, a remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the affected host, subject to the privileges of the user running the application.


Upgrade to Apple iTunes 6.0.5 or later.
