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

LaunchServices in Apple Mac OS X before 10.9 does not properly restrict Unicode characters in filenames, which allows context-dependent attackers to spoof file extensions via a crafted character sequence.
