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 WebKit component in Safari in Apple iPhone OS before 3.1, and iPhone OS before 3.1.1 for iPod touch, does not remove usernames and passwords from URLs sent in Referer headers, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading Referer logs on a web server.
