Apple iOS < 10.3.1 RCE
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700115
SynopsisThe remote host is running a version of Apple iOS that is affected by a Remote Code Execution (RCE) attack vector.
DescriptionThe version of iOS running on the mobile device is prior to 10.3.1, and is affected by an overflow condition that exists in the Wi-Fi HardMAC SoCs. The issue is triggered as input is not properly validated when handling FT-IEs in 802.11r Fast BSS Transition Authentication Responses. This may allow an proximate attacker to cause a stack-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to Apple iOS 10.3.1 or later.
