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 Secure Channel (aka SChannel) security package in Microsoft Windows XP SP2 and SP3, and Windows Server 2003 SP2, does not properly validate certificate request messages from TLS and SSL servers, which allows remote servers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted SSL response, aka "SChannel Malformed Certificate Request Remote Code Execution Vulnerability."
