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

Secure Static Versioning in Sun Java JDK and JRE 6 Update 6 and earlier, and 5.0 Update 6 through 15, does not properly prevent execution of applets on older JRE releases, which might allow remote attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in these older releases.
