Apple Filing Protocol Server Detection

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


An Apple file sharing service is listening on the remote port.


The remote service understands the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) and responds to a 'FPGetSrvrInfo' ('DSIGetStatus') request with information about itself.

AFP is used to offer file services for Mac OS X as well as the older Mac OS. In the past, it has also been known as 'AppleTalk Filing Protocol' and 'AppleShare'.
