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

Bluetooth in Apple OS X before 10.10 does not require encryption for HID Low Energy devices, which allows remote attackers to spoof a device by leveraging previous pairing.
