critical Nessus Plugin ID 66499
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 host is prior to version 11.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to certificate validation. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to spoof HTTPS servers, which allows the disclosure of sensitive information or the application to trust data from untrusted sources. Note that this issue affects the application regardless of the operating system.

- The version of WebKit included in iTunes contains several errors that can lead to memory corruption and arbitrary code execution. The vendor states that one possible vector is a man-in-the-middle attack while the application browses the 'iTunes Store'. Please note that these vulnerabilities only affect the application when it is running on a Windows host.
