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

The IP cloaking feature (cloak.c) in UnrealIRCd 3.2, and possibly other versions, uses a weak hashing scheme to hide IP addresses, which could allow remote attackers to use brute force methods to gain other user's IP addresses.
