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

Format string vulnerability in iMovie HD 6.0.3, and Safari in Apple Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.4.10, allows remote user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via format string specifiers in a filename, which is not properly handled when calling the NSRunCriticalAlertPanel Apple AppKit function.
