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 IPv6 implementation in the kernel in Apple Mac OS X before 10.6.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and reboot) via vectors involving socket options.
