Apple TV < 6.1.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8274


The version of this Apple TV device is not current and is thus open to multiple vulnerabilities.


The following have since been patched in version 6.1.1:

- Set-Cookie HTTP headers are processed even if the connection closed before the header was complete. An attacker could leverage this to strip security settings and obtain the HTTP cookie. (CVE-2014-1296)
- Information disclosure due to the IOKit object storing kernel pointers, which could be used by a local attacker to defeat kernel address space layout randomization. (CVE-2014-1320)
- A 'triple handshake' vulnerability could be leveraged by an attacker on the local network to perform a man-in-the-middle attack. (CVE-2014-1295)
- Multiple memory corruption issues in the underlying WebKit library. (CVE-2013-2871, CVE-2014-1298, CVE-2014-1299, CVE-2014-1300, CVE-2014-1302, CVE-2014-1303, CVE-2014-1304, CVE-2014-1305, CVE-2014-1307, CVE-2014-1308, CVE-2014-1309, CVE-2014-1310, CVE-2014-1311, CVE-2014-1312, CVE-2014-1313, CVE-2014-1713)
