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

gnome-screensaver 2.14.3, 2.22.2, 2.27.x, 2.28.0, and 2.28.3, when the X configuration enables the extend screen option, allows physically proximate attackers to bypass screen locking, access an unattended workstation, and view half of the GNOME desktop by attaching an external monitor.
