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

Stack-based buffer overflow in CarbonCore in Apple Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5.4, iPhone OS 1.0 through 2.2.1, and iPhone OS for iPod touch 1.1 through 2.2.1 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long filename to the file management API.
