Apple iTunes 7.0.2 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted XML list of radio stations, which results in memory corruption. NOTE: iTunes retrieves the XML document from a static URL, which requires an attacker to perform DNS spoofing or man-in-the-middle attacks for exploitation.
CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
Impact Subscore: 2.9
Exploitability Subscore: 4.9
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable; Victim must voluntarily interact with attack mechanism
Access Complexity: High
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows disruption of service
Successful exploitation requires that an attacker perform some type of DNS spoofing or man-in-the-middle attack prior to launching this attack.
