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 Safari Settings feature in Safari in Apple iOS 4.x before 4.3 does not properly implement the clearing of cookies during execution of the Safari application, which might make it easier for remote web servers to track users by setting a cookie.
