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

VI Client in VMware VirtualCenter before 2.5 Update 4, VMware ESXi 3.5 before Update 4, and VMware ESX 3.5 before Update 4 retains the VirtualCenter Server password in process memory, which might allow local users to obtain this password.
