Apple iTunes < 12.4.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities (credentialed check)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 92410
SynopsisThe remote host contains an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.4.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in the libxslt component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1684, CVE-2016-4607, CVE-2016-4608, CVE-2016-4609, CVE-2016-4610, CVE-2016-4612)
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in the libxml2 component that allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-1836, CVE-2016-4447, CVE-2016-4448, CVE-2016-4483, CVE-2016-4614, CVE-2016-4615, CVE-2016-4616, CVE-2016-4619)
- An XXE (Xml eXternal Entity) injection vulnerability exists in the libxml2 component due to an incorrectly configured XML parser accepting XML external entities from an untrusted source. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted XML file, to disclose arbitrary files and user information. (CVE-2016-4449)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
