Apple TV < 7.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8562
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.


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


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)


Upgrade Apple TV to 7.0.1, or later.
