iTunes < 8.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

According to its banner, the version of iTunes installed on the remote host is older than 8.1.

Such versions may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- It may be possible to cause a denial of service by sending a maliciously crafted DAAP header to the application. Note that this flaw only affects iTunes running on a Windows host. (CVE-2009-0016)

- When subscribing to a podcast an authentication dialog may be presented without clarifying the origin of the authentication request. An attacker could exploit this flaw in order to steal the user's iTunes credentials. (CVE-2009-0143)");

Solution

Upgrade to version 8.1 or higher.
