Apple iTunes < 10.6.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities (uncredentialed check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 59498
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.


The remote host contains a multimedia application that has multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Apple iTunes on the remote Windows host is prior to version 10.6.3. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A memory corruption vulnerability exists in the WebKit component. By using a specially crafted website, an attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. Note that this vulnerability was addressed on Mac OS X systems by an update for Safari and, therefore, may not necessarily affect the remote host. (CVE-2012-0672)

- Stack and heap based buffer overflow errors exist in the handling of 'm3u' playlist files. An attacker can exploit these to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-0677)


Upgrade to Apple iTunes 10.6.3 or later.
