Apple TV < 10.2.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700118
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.


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


Versions of Apple TV earlier than 10.2.1 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the handling of RenderLayer objects. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A logic flaw exists that allows a universal cross-site scripting (UXSS) attack. The issue is triggered when handling WebKit Editor commands. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to create a specially crafted web page that will execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and any website.

This product is also affected by vulnerabilities found in the following components:

- AVEVideoEncoder
- CoreAudio
- CoreFoundation
- Foundation
- IOSurface
- Kernel
- SQLite
- TextInput
- WebKit
- Web Inspector


Upgrade Apple TV to 10.2.1, or later.
