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 VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) command-line utilities in VMware ESX 3.0.1 through 3.0.3 and ESX 3.5 place a password on the command line, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by listing the process.
