Apple TV < 7.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (POODLE)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78871

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.
