Apple iTunes < 12.5.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (uncredentialed check)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 96831


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


The version of Apple iTunes running on the remote 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.
