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 MCX Desktop Config Profiles implementation in Apple OS X before 10.10 retains web-proxy settings from uninstalled mobile-configuration profiles, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information in opportunistic circumstances by leveraging access to an unintended proxy server.
