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 NH208 and NH215 run a TFTP server which allows remote attackers to send software updates to modify the switch or cause a denial of service (crash) by guessing the target filenames, which have default names.
