Apple iTunes < 12.5.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Uncredentialed Check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 94934

Synopsis

An application running on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Apple iTunes running on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.5.2 It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in WebKit when handling the location attribute due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted web content, to disclose sensitive information on the user's system. (CVE-2016-4613)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via specially crafted web content, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-7578)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apple iTunes version 12.5.2 or later.
