Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8135


The remote mobile host is running a version of Apple iOS that is missing an update related to the security of data in transit.


According to its banner, the remote Apple iOS device is missing a security update. Versions of Apple iOS 6.x prior to 6.1.6, or 7.x prior to 7.0.6 are missing an update that restores missing validation steps when conducting a SSL/TLS session. This error could allow an attacker to spoof a server and modify or view sensitive information between it and the iOS device.
