high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700034


The remote host is missing a high severity Apple iOS patch update.


The version of iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 10.3, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified state management flaw exists that may allow a context-dependent attacker to spoof the address bar. No further details have been provided. (CVE-2017-2376)
- An unspecified flaw exists in the handling of HTTP authentication. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to display authentication sheets on arbitrary web sites and cause a denial of service. (CVE-2017-2389)
- A flaw exists in the password-protected PDF export feature that is triggered as a weak encryption algorithm is used. This may allow an attacker with access to a password-protected document to potentially disclose the document content. (CVE-2017-2391)
- A flaw exists in the 'SecKeyRawVerify()' function that is triggered as parameters are not properly validated during the handling of cryptographic API calls. This may allow a remote attacker to have an empty signature be accepted as valid. (CVE-2017-2423)
