iTunes < 12.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700114
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host is running a version of iTunes that is affected by multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of iTunes prior to 12.6 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A use-after-free condition exists that is triggered when handling RenderBox objects. With specially crafted web content, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-2463)
- A flaw exists that allows a universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) attack. This flaw exists because the 'notifyChildNodeRemoved()' function in 'WebCore/dom/ContainerNodeAlgorithms.cpp' executes script code synchronously. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to create a specially crafted web page that executes arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and any server. (CVE-2017-2479)
- A flaw exists that allows a UXSS attack. This flaw exists because the program does not properly revalidates the 'SubframeLoader::requestFrame()' function in 'WebCore/loader/SubframeLoader.cpp'. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to create a specially crafted web page that executes arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and any server. (CVE-2017-2480)

Solution

Upgrade to iTunes 12.6 or later.
