iTunes < 11.1 ActiveX Memory Corruption

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8014


The remote host is running a multimedia application that contains a potential memory corruption vulnerability.


Versions of iTunes earlier than 11.1 are reportedly affected by a memory corruption vulnerability that can be triggered via an ActiveX control. This is due to insufficient user input sanitation, by which a context-dependent attacker may execute arbitrary code or terminate the application.


Upgrade to iTunes 11.1 or later.
