CVE-2011-0178

LOW
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 FSFindFolder API in CarbonCore in Apple Mac OS X before 10.6.7 provides a world-readable directory in response to a call with the kTemporaryFolderType flag, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information by accessing this directory.
