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 Screen Lock implementation in Apple Mac OS X before 10.9, when hibernation and autologin are enabled, does not require a password for a transition out of hibernation, which allows physically proximate attackers to obtain access by visiting an unattended workstation in the hibernating state.
