Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78871

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: 5.8

Synopsis

The remote device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its banner, the remote Apple TV device is a version prior to 7.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. A man-in-the-middle attacker can decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections. This is also known as the 'POODLE' issue. (CVE-2014-3566)

- A error exists that permits unencrypted connections for Human Interface Device (HID) class Bluetooth Low Energy accessories. This allows a local attacker to spoof another legitimate Bluetooth device to bypass pairing.
(CVE-2014-4428)

Solution

Upgrade to Apple TV 7.0.1 or later. Note that this update is only available for 3rd generation and later models.
