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

Power Management in Apple Mac OS X before 10.8.5 does not properly perform locking upon occurrences of a power assertion, which allows physically proximate attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by visiting an unattended workstation on which a locking failure had prevented the startup of the screen saver.
