high Nessus Plugin ID 96730


The version of Apple iOS running on the mobile device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Apple iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 10.2.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in multiple components, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these remote code execution vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. The affected components are as follows :

- Auto Unlock
- Contacts
- Kernel
- libarchive
- WebKit
- WiFi


Upgrade to Apple iOS version 10.2.1 or later.
