Apple iTunes < 12.5.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (uncredentialed Check)

High Nessus Plugin ID 94971

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 12.5.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to improper handling of error prototypes. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a maliciously crafted website, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4728)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in WebKit due to a permission issue caused by improper handling of the location variable. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a maliciously crafted website, to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-4758)

- Multiple memory corruption errors exist in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues, by convincing a user to visit a maliciously crafted website, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-4759, CVE-2016-4762, CVE-2016-4764, CVE-2016-4765, CVE-2016-4766, CVE-2016-4767, CVE-2016-4768, CVE-2016-4769)

- A rebinding flaw exists in WebKit due to a failure to restrict HTTP/0.9 responses to default ports and cancel resource loads if a document is loaded with a different HTTP protocol version. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a maliciously crafted website, to access non-HTTP services. (CVE-2016-4760)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists in WebKit in the WKWebView component due to a failure to properly verify X.509 certificates from HTTPS servers. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted certificate, to spoof servers and disclose or manipulate network traffic. (CVE-2016-4763)

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 12.5.1 or later.
