Apple iTunes < 12.4 DLL Injection Arbitrary Code Execution (credentialed check)
High Nessus Plugin ID 91347
SynopsisThe remote host contains an application that is affected by a DLL injection vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.4. It is, therefore, affected by a DLL (Dynamic Link Library) injection vulnerability in the setup component that is triggered when running the installer from an untrusted directory. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by placing a specially crafted DLL file in the untrusted directory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Apple iTunes version 12.4 or later.
