Description

The remote version of Apple iTunes is older than 9.0.1. Such versions are affected by a buffer overflow involving the handling of PLS files. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a malicious PLS file, he can leverage this issue to crash the affected application or to execute arbitrary code on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.
