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

Printer Setup in Apple Mac OS X 10.6 before 10.6.4 does not properly interpret character encoding, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (printing failure) by deploying a printing device that has a Unicode character in its printing-service name.
