Apple TV < 10.2.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700118


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. (OSVDB 157532, OSVDB 157534, OSVDB 157536, OSVDB 157538, OSVDB 157539, OSVDB 157544, OSVDB 157545)
- 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. (OSVDB 157535)
- 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. (OSVDB 157600, OSVDB 157604)

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

- AVEVideoEncoder (OSVDB 157566, OSVDB 157869, OSVDB 157870, OSVDB 157871, OSVDB 157872, OSVDB 157873, OSVDB 157874)
- CoreAudio (OSVDB 157552)
- CoreFoundation (OSVDB 157894)
- Foundation (OSVDB 157895)
- IOSurface (OSVDB 157550)
- Kernel (OSVDB 157547, OSVDB 157549, OSVDB 157554)
- SQLite (OSVDB 157560, OSVDB 157561, OSVDB 157562, OSVDB 157563)
- TextInput (OSVDB 157553)
- WebKit (OSVDB 157590)
- Web Inspector (OSVDB 157667)
