Apple iTunes < 12.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities (uncredentialed check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 86601
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7


The remote host contains an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Apple iTunes running on the remote host is prior to 12.3. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the WebKit, CoreText, and ICU components, and in the bundled version of the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ Redistributable Package. An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a denial of service, execute arbitrary code, or gain access to encrypted SMB credentials.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apple iTunes version 12.3 or later.
