Apple iTunes Dynamic Linked Library (DLL) code execution
|itunes-dll-code-execution (61223)||High Risk|
Apple iTunes could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the passing of an insufficiently qualified path when loading an external library. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted media file containing a malicious Dynamic Linked Library (DLL) file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
