New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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

Description

NBase switches NH2012, NH2012R, NH2015, and NH2048 have a back door password that cannot be disabled, which allows remote attackers to modify the switch's configuration.
