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 VNC server implementation in QEMU, as used by Xen and possibly other environments, allows local users of a guest operating system to read arbitrary files on the host operating system via unspecified vectors related to QEMU monitor mode, as demonstrated by mapping files to a CDROM device. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.
