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

CFPreferences in Apple OS X before 10.10 does not properly enforce the "require password after sleep or screen saver begins" setting, which makes it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain access by leveraging an unattended workstation.
