Apple iOS Version and Model Detection via ActiveSync

info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8770
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is using Apple iOS.


The Apple mobile host was identified as it connected to an ActiveSync server. ActiveSync allows a mobile device to be synchronized with either a desktop PC or a server running a compatible software product, such as MS Exchange Server or Novell GroupWise, to enable services such as email or policy management. While monitoring traffic from this host, PVS was able to identify the Apple device model and OS version.
