Apple iOS Lockdown Detection

info Nessus Plugin ID 57461
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.


The remote host is running Apple iOS.


The lockdown service, part of Apple iOS, was detected on the remote host. This service is used to communicate with iOS devices for several tasks (e.g., Wi-Fi sync).

Note that this plugin will only work against devices that have ever had Wi-Fi sync enabled (iOS versions 5 and later).
