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 DBI library (libdbi-perl) for Perl allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a temporary PID file.
