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

libsecurity in Apple Mac OS X 10.5.8 and 10.6.4 does not properly perform comparisons to domain-name strings in X.509 certificates, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via a certificate associated with a similar domain name, as demonstrated by use of a www.example.con certificate to spoof www.example.com.
