Apple iOS 9.0.x < 9.0.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities.

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8980
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 missing a critical Apple iOS patch update.


Versions of Apple iOS 9.x prior to 9.0.2 are affected by an authorization bypass vulnerability. This is due to a flaw in the Lock Screen behavior when a specific sequence of events takes place. Successful attempts to exploit and bypass the lock screen will result in unfettered access to the device as well as any of its saved content.


Upgrade to Apple iOS 9.0.2 or later.
