iTunes < 12.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8561
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.

Synopsis

The remote host is running a multimedia application that is unpatched for a number of vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of iTunes earlier than 12.0.1 are missing updates that patch memory corruption vulnerabilities within WebKit, as well as a patch that fixes a man-in-the-middle vulnerability that affects encrypted connections to the iTunes Store via iTunes. The most severe of these vulnerabilites can result in arbitrary remote code execution or unexpected application termination.

Solution

Upgrade to iTunes 12.0.1 or later.
