New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Description

Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 through 11 does not prevent use of wildcard EV SSL certificates, which might allow remote attackers to spoof a trust level by leveraging improper issuance of a wildcard certificate by a recognized Certification Authority, aka "Extended Validation (EV) Certificate Security Feature Bypass Vulnerability."
