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

Apple Safari before 4.0 does not prevent calls to the open-help-anchor URL handler by web sites, which allows remote attackers to open arbitrary local help files, and execute arbitrary code or obtain sensitive information, via a crafted call.
