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

MySQL 3.23.55 and earlier creates world-writeable files and allows mysql users to gain root privileges by using the "SELECT * INFO OUTFILE" operator to overwrite a configuration file and cause mysql to run as root upon restart, as demonstrated by modifying my.cnf.
