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

Apache HttpClient 4.x before 4.1.1 in Apache HttpComponents, when used with an authenticating proxy server, sends the Proxy-Authorization header to the origin server, which allows remote web servers to obtain sensitive information by logging this header.
