Apple TV < 7.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8562

Synopsis

The version of this Apple TV device is not current and is thus unpatched for multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of Apple TV earlier than 7.0.1 are unpatched for two vulnerabilities:

- SSL protocol 3.0 uses nondeterministic CBC padding, which exposes it to man-in-the-middle attacks (aka, the "POODLE" issue); the issue was fixed by disabling CBC cipher suites from use when TLS connection attempts fail (CVE-2014-3566)
- Unencrypted Bluetooth input are allowed, which could be leveraged by an attacker to spoof Bluetooth connections; the issue was fixed by disallowing unencrypted connections (CVE-2014-4428)

Solution

Upgrade Apple TV to 7.0.1, or later.
