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 XML libraries for Python 3.4, 3.3, 3.2, 3.1, 2.7, and 2.6, as used in OpenStack Keystone Essex and Folsom, Django, and possibly other products allow remote attackers to read arbitrary files via an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, aka an XML External Entity (XXE) attack.
