Apple iTunes < 12.5.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (credentialed check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 96830


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


The version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 12.5.5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in WebKit due to improper validation of certain unspecified input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via specially crafted web content, to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-2354, CVE-2017-2356, CVE-2017-2366)

- An unspecified memory initialization flaw exists in WebKit that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2355)

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 12.5.5 or later.
