Versions of iTunes prior to 12.6.2 are affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- Multiple out-of-bounds read errors exist in the libxml2 component due to improper handling of specially crafted XML documents. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these to disclose user information. (CVE-2017-7010, CVE-2017-7013)
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in the Webkit Web Inspector component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted web page, to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7012)
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in the WebKit component due to improper validation of input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues, via a specially crafted web page, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7018, CVE-2017-7020, CVE-2017-7030, CVE-2017-7034, CVE-2017-7037, CVE-2017-7039, CVE-2017-7040, CVE-2017-7041, CVE-2017-7042, CVE-2017-7043, CVE-2017-7046, CVE-2017-7048, CVE-2017-7049, CVE-2017-7052, CVE-2017-7055, CVE-2017-7056, CVE-2017-7061)
