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

Microsoft Terminal Server using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 5.2 stores an RSA private key in mstlsapi.dll and uses it to sign a certificate, which allows remote attackers to spoof public keys of legitimate servers and conduct man-in-the-middle attacks.
