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 Private Browsing feature in Safari in Apple iOS before 5.1 allows remote attackers to bypass intended privacy settings and insert history entries via JavaScript code that calls the (1) pushState or (2) replaceState method.
