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

Apple iOS before 8.1.1 does not properly enforce the failed-passcode limit, which makes it easier for physically proximate attackers to bypass the lock-screen protection mechanism via a series of guesses.
