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

VMware VirtualCenter 2.5 before Update 3 build 119838 on Windows displays a user's password in cleartext when the password contains unspecified special characters, which allows physically proximate attackers to steal the password.
