New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The version of iOS running on the mobile device is affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability.


The version of iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 9.3.4. It is, therefore, affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability in the IOMobileFrameBuffer component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade to Apple iOS version 9.3.4 or later.
