Description

The version of Apple iTunes running on the remote host is prior to 12.6.1. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to memory corruption caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open maliciously crafted web content, to execute arbitrary code.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
