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 i386_set_ldt system call in the kernel in Apple Mac OS X before 10.6.7 does not properly handle call gates, which allows local users to gain privileges via vectors involving the creation of a call gate entry.
