Run AppleScripts on a Mac using Remote.app
Authored by: Snaro on Oct 12, '10 11:34:19AM
There may be a very limited possibility for abuse. But consider the conditions that have to be met before someone can actually do something malicious:
  1. There must be a special script running. This is not a built-in: you have to provide it
  2. There must be a playlist titled "Scripts"
  3. Within this playlist, there must be songs that contain the actual script code in the comments. Again, these can't be inserted remotely, you have to include the script code in your local song files.
  4. A possible attacker must have access to your WiFi and his iDevice must be paired with iTunes
I doubt very much that this can be considered a security breach.
