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 Microsoft Office Spotlight Importer in Spotlight in Apple Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5 before 10.5.7 does not properly validate Microsoft Office files, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a file that triggers memory corruption.
