Apple TV < 7.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (FREAK)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 81790
SynopsisThe remote device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the remote Apple TV device is a version prior to 7.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A type confusion error exists related to 'IOSurface' and serialized object handling that allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-1061)
- An error exists in 'MobileStorageMounter' related to developer disk mounting logic and invalid disk image folders that allows a malicious application to create folders in trusted locations. (CVE-2015-1062)
- A security feature bypass vulnerability, known as FREAK (Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys), exists due to the support of weak EXPORT_RSA cipher suites with keys less than or equal to 512 bits. A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to downgrade the SSL/TLS connection to use EXPORT_RSA cipher suites which can be factored in a short amount of time, allowing the attacker to intercept and decrypt the traffic. (CVE-2015-1067)
SolutionUpgrade to Apple TV 7.1 or later. Note that this update is only available for 3rd generation and later models.
